You will be prompted to select a feeder or downstream distribution equipment.
Select one-line diagram feeder or distribution equipment being fed to redraw:
If you select a feeder, you will then be prompted to select a start point at the upstream distribution equipment from which to begin drawing the feeder. If you select a distribution equipment, you will be prompted to select a start point at the downstream distribution equipment from which to begin drawing the feeder.
Specify start point at <upstream/downstream> distribution equipment or [Reverse direction / Offset from other feeder / <use Default starting point>]:
Start point: Specify a point on the drawing. The feeder will start at that point.
Reverse direction: Type R to toggle between specifying a start point at the upstream or downstream distribution equipment.
Offset from other feeder: Type O to offset the feeder from another feeder. You will be prompted to select a feeder from which to offset.
Use default starting point: Press ENTER or type D to use the default feeder starting point for the distribution equipment.
After you have selected a starting point, you will then be prompted to specify additional points to which the feeder will be drawn.
Specify next point or [Undo / Finish / Offset from other feeder]:
Next point: Specify a point on the drawing. The feeder will extend in a straight horizontal or vertical line to a point parallel to the specified point.
Undo: Type U to return to the previous command prompt.
Finish: Type F to automatically connect the feeder to the downstream distribution equipment.
Offset from other feeder: Type O to offset the feeder being redrawn from another feeder. You will be prompted to specify the feeder from which the redrawn feeder is being offset. Temporarily, object snap points for the selected feeder will be offset from the feeder itself.
After you have redrawn the feeder, you will be prompted to specify a location on the feeder for the feeder ID block to be inserted.
Specify feeder block insertion location or [<Default location>]:
Insertion location: Specify a point on the drawing along the feeder. The feeder ID block will be inserted at that point.
