Updating Homerun Without Loosing Loop Customization

Friday, November 8th, 2013

Problem: You have manually modified the layout of the loops on your drawing, and you need to modify the homerun or add some additional devices to the circuit. When you run the Draw Homeruns and Loops command, all your modifications are lost.

Solution: Don’t use the Draw Homerun and Loops command 🙂 We have a number of other commands that you can use instead in this situation. They are all available in the DM Electrical->Circuiting and Homeruns section of the menu.

Draw Homerun Only: Use this command if you need to redraw the homerun and leave the loops alone. It will redraw just the homerun. You can use it to redraw the homerun on the device where it is currently located or to move the homerun to a new device.

Loop Devices Manually: Use this command to add loops to devices that you added to the circuit. If you add a single device, manually inserting the loop can be easier than redrawing them and having to adjust everything again.

Modify Circuit Label: Use this command to remove the circuit label if you manually add a loop to a device.

Draw Tick Marks: Use this command to redraw all the tick marks on the loops when you make changes. It will adjust the tick marks to account for loops you removed and added.
