Draw loops: How loops are drawn between devices. See the section for more information on the available choices.
Loop to same circuit first on combined homeruns (light fixtures): How loops are drawn on combined homeruns containing light fixtures.See the section for more information this setting.
Loop to same circuit first on combined homeruns (other devices): How loops are drawn on combined homeruns containing devices other than light fixtures.See the section for more information this setting.
Display wire callouts on homeruns: Whether wire callouts are to be displayed on homeruns.
Display tick marks on homeruns: Whether homerun wire callouts are labeled using tick marks or wire callouts.
Display tick marks on loops: Whether or not tick marks are displayed on loops between devices.
Multiple arrowheads on combined homeruns: Whether combined homeruns display a single arrowhead or one arrowhead for each circuit on the homerun.
Share neutrals on combined homeruns: Whether or not neutrals on combined homeruns are shared. The 2008 NEC requires this to be set to No. To share neutrals in accordance with the 2008 NEC, create a multiple pole breaker and use the Circuit to Phase button on the Circuiting dialog box.
Compute conduit length: How wire lengths between devices are calculated.See the section for more information this setting.
Circuit break block: The block that is used when circuits are broken. Use the None setting if you do not want a block displayed on broken circuits.
Homerun arrow block: The block used for homerun arrowheads.
