Multiple Alignment Points on a Single Drawing

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

It is possible to insert more than one alignment point on a drawing.

If you insert more than one alignment point, every alignment point inserted after the first will also have an area associated with it. All of the devices that are in that area are associated with the alignment point in that area. Any device that is not in an area is associated with the first alignment point in the drawing.

In the example below, the arrows point from the fixtures to the alignment point that is used for them.

    We use this feature often. Once in a while, the alignment area needs to change in size or shape. Is there a good way to modify the alignment area once it’s drawn?

  2. You can use either grips or the STRETCH command to adjust the area. It will always revert to a box after it is adjusted so you can’t get too creative with the shape.
