Exempt Callout on Light Fixtures

Thursday, March 7th, 2019

Problem: When you insert certain light fixtures, an additional block that you don’t want is inserted along with the light fixture.

Cause: This block, shown in the image, is a callout inserted on light fixtures that have been marked as Exempt in either the project schedule or the Insert Light Fixture dialog box. If you want the light fixture to be exempt but not display the callout, there are two solutions:

 

Solution 1: Remove the callout from specific light fixtures on the drawing using the Erase Part of Device command.

Ribbon: DM Electrical->Devices-> dm_elec-device-erasePart Erase Part of Device

Pulldown Menu: DM Electrical->Modify Devices->Erase Part of Device

Select the callout and it will be removed.

 

Solution 2: Disable the callout for all light fixtures in the project using the Options command.

Ribbon: DME: Customization->Project Customization-> dm_dm-optionP Options

Pulldown Menu: DM Electrical->Customization->Options->Edit Project List

In the Light Fixtures section, find the Exempt lighting group block option. Erase the block name, then press the OK button to save your changes.

This will not affect light fixtures already inserted on the drawing. You will need to reinsert those light fixtures or use the Erase Part of Device command as described in Solution 1.
