One-Line Device Plan View Blocks

The One-Line Device Plan View Blocks commands allow you to customize the list of blocks available to be used for one-line device plan views in the project and master schedules.

See the Block Creation section for more information about creating new blocks.

See the General Customization Commands section for more information about how the Edit Project List, Edit Master List, Copy Project List to Master, and Copy Master List to Project commands work.

The Edit Project List and Edit Master List commands open the One-line Device Plan View Blocks dialog box.

See the Common Block Information section for more information on the other values that can be specified for one-line device plan view blocks.

For most one-line device plan views, To Scale should be checked and Can Rotate should be checked. The Common Block Information section has more information about what happens when these fields are checked or not checked.

Include Access: Whether or not an access area is drawn in the front of the one-line block. The size of the access is specified in the Insert Plan View Block command in the Clearance section of the dialog box.

One-Line Device Type: Which type of one-line device can use this block.

Default: Whether or not the block is used as the default for a specific one-line device type. Each type listed in the One-Line Device Type column can have one block selected.

Custom Size: Whether or not the block can be inserted as a custom size or not. If this is checked, the size of the device is specified when creating or inserting the one-line device. The block will be scaled by the specified size.

Maximum Transformer KVA: Transformer block sizes can be selected based upon the kVA of the transformer. The block with the kVA value closest to the kVA of the transformer without exceeding it is chosen.
