Use AutoCAD Content Explorer in AutoCAD Electrical
Content Explorer combines content from a variety of local folders for quick location and real-time access from within the AutoCAD design environment. You can index content for quick access, catalog the objects in each file, and perform searches on local folders. The following AutoCAD Electrical commands are available from Content Explorer:
Insert schematic component
Insert panel footprint, nameplate, or terminal
Add your AutoCAD electrical library folders to Content Explorer. Use the search function to find a library symbol or circuit, right-click and select the AutoCAD Electrical command from the menu.
By entering a search string into the search field, Content Explorer goes through every file located in the selected folder and returns the files with a file name, author, keyword, comment, name, subject, or title that meets the search criteria.
You can also search for text contained in:
