Trace Architect's Switches

The Trace Architect's Switches command is used to trace the switch layout from another drawing that does not have Design Master entities.


Before using this command, create switches using the Switch Project Schedule command.

This command should be run on the drawing from which you are copying the switch layout. Do not run this command on the drawing you are using for your electrical design.

Both drawings must be in the same folder.

To trace a switch layout, go to
Ribbon: DM Electrical→Devices→  Trace Architect's Switches
Pulldown Menu: DM Electrical→Switches→Trace Architect's Switches

The Background Mapper dialog box will appear.
