One-Line Diagram Feeder Graphics

Allows you to customize the list of graphic families available to be used on feeders on the one-line diagram.

Opens the "dme-feeders.txt" file located in your customization folder:

The information is arranged in tab-delimited columns. Each section is separated by a heading row that begins with *. When modifying the file, do not change the *META section, the first column, or any rows that begin with *.

*TYPE

This section is used to determine how graphic families are grouped and displayed in the Add/Modify Graphic and Circuit Insert commands.

ID: An identifying number associated with the group.

NAME: The name of the group that is displayed in the Group field.

PARTTYPE: The type of feeder graphic for which the group will be available in the Group field. This value must be OCP, SEGMENT, ID, or OTHER.

OCP: The group will be displayed when specifying an OCP graphic in the Circuit Insert command and when adding or modifying any graphic in the Add/Modify Graphic command.

Using Excel to Modify Feeder Graphics

When making several changes to the feeder graphics customization file, using Excel is recommended.

To edit the file, in Excel, run the Open command and browse to the "dme-feeders.txt" file located in your customization folder. You may need to filter the files by All Files or Text Files.

After selecting the file, a Text Import Wizard dialog box may appear. Press the Next button twice, then the Finish button to use the default settings.

Each section is separated by a heading row that begins with *. When modifying the file, do not change the *META section, the first column, or any rows that begin with *.
