Common Schedule Dialog Box Features

All of the schedule dialog boxes work in a similar way. The buttons available that you use to create and modify records in the schedule are all the same. Learning how to use one of the dialog boxes allows you to know how to use the other dialog boxes.

New: Press this button to create a new record in the schedule. The record will be created with default information.

Copy: Press this button to copy the currently displayed record in the schedule. The newly created record will be created with the same information as the currently displayed record.

Save: Press this button to save any changes made to the currently displayed record in the schedule. If you make changes and do not press this button, you will be prompted to save your changes before selecting a new record or closing the schedule dialog box.

Delete: Press this button to delete the currently displayed record in the schedule. If there are any devices inserted on a drawing in the project that uses the record, you will not be able to delete it. You must first delete all the devices from the drawings, then you can delete the record.

Rename: Press this button to rename the currently displayed record in the schedule. Any labels on the drawing will be updated automatically to match the new name.

Find: Press this button to select a schedule record from a list of all the items in the schedule. The record you select will be displayed in the dialog box, allowing you to view and modify it.

Next: Press this button to select and display the next record in the schedule. The next record is determined by sorting the entries in the schedule alphabetically. If you press this button when viewing the last record, it will wrap back to the beginning and display the first record.

Previous: Press this button to select and display the previous record in the schedule. The previous record is determined by sorting the entries in the schedule alphabetically. If you press this button when viewing the first record, it will wrap to the ending and display the last record.
