Switch Rotation in Schedules

Friday, November 8th, 2013

Problem: Your switch blocks are rotated incorrectly in your schedule.

Solution: Run the DM Electrical->Customization->Options->Edit Project List command.  Find the Switches section. Change the setting of the Switch Rotation option. Insert your switch schedule.

Switches still rotated wrong? Keep changing the option until you find the one that makes it look right.

Explanation: Switch blocks in the switch schedule are rotated differently from devices in other schedules.

For most devices, the rotation is not very important, as long as it fits nicely. For switches, you typically want the switch to stand vertically so the S looks correct.

How the S looks depends upon how you created your blocks.  There is no way to know automatically how to rotate the switch block so it is correct.

The Switch Rotation option exists so you can tell the software how to rotate the switch blocks. Otherwise, it is forced to guess, and sometimes would be wrong.
