This section describes the options available in the Light Fixtures group in the Design Master Electrical Options dialog box.

Customization--Options.Edit Project List.Light Fixtures

Insert callout as part of each light fixture: Whether a light fixture callout note is inserted as part of each light fixture on the drawing.

LF callout (long lamp label): A block used when you insert a light fixture callout. It is used when the lamp label is wider than the value specified in LF callout short label width.

LF callout (short lamp label): A block used when you insert a light fixture callout. It is used when the lamp label is smaller than the value specified in the LF callout short label width.

LF callout short label width: This width is used to determine which LF callout is inserted for a light fixture.

Insert callout after each light fixture: Whether a light fixture callout is inserted after each light fixture is inserted on the drawing. The light fixture callout that is inserted is the same as what is inserted using the Insert Light Fixture Callout command.

Lighting group block (1-9): A block used when you associated a light fixture with a lighting group. It is used when the group number is less than 10.

Lighting group block (10+): A block used when you associated a light fixture with a lighting group. It is used when the group number is 10 or more.

Exempt lighting group block: The block used when a light fixture is marked as exempt. Set this value to be blank to not insert a block next to exempt fixtures. See the Exempt Light Fixtures section for more information.

Display light fixture overlay: This specifies when a light fixture overlay will be displayed on non-plotting layers.

Never: Light fixture overlays will never be inserted.
During insertion: The overlay will be displayed only when the light fixture is inserted. Once the light fixture is inserted, the overlay is no longer displayed. To view the overlay again, you must insert a new fixture.
Always: The light fixture overlay will always be displayed.

The light fixture overlay is only generated for fixtures that have sufficient photometric information defined. The General Photometrics checkbox or Egress Photometrics checkbox needs to be checked. The Elevation needs to be set higher than 0. An IES file must be associated with the fixture callout.
