Edit Wire Number
Allows manual edit of an existing wire number or insert of a new one if none exists.
Fix Wire Numbers
Fixes all or many wire numbers on a drawing at their current values. Fixing a wire number means that the wire number tag is left unchanged if later processed or reprocessed by the automatic wire numbering utility.
Swap Wire Numbers
|Swaps wire numbers between two wire networks.|
Find/Replace Wire Numbers
|Finds and replaces wire number text values or substrings within those values. You can do this on the active drawing or across the project drawing set.|
Hide Wire Numbers
Moves the wire number to a special hide layer so that the number is no longer visible on the screen. The new hide layer is created from the wire number layer name with a “_HIDE” suffix. For example, if the wire number text layer is called WIRENO then the hide layer name is called “WIRENO_HIDE.” The layer is created automatically when needed and you are asked if you want to freeze this layer.
Unhide Wire Numbers
Moves the wire number out of the hide layer so that the number is visible on the screen.
|Removes a wire segment and dots as required. You can select a single wire or draw a fence through multiple wires to trim.|
|Delete Wire Numbers|
Deletes selected wire numbers.
Finds the nearest line reference location and places a ladder rung at that reference position (both bus wires must be visible on the screen for this to work. If the new rung encounters a schematic device floating in space, it tries to break the wire across the device.
Adjusts the line reference numbering along the side of the ladders; however it doesn't change existing ladder rung spacing.
Renumber Ladder Reference
Renumbers the ladder for the selected drawings from the active project.
Create/Edit Wire TypeAEWIRETYPE
Creates and edits wire types. Use the grid control to sort and select the wire types for easy modification.
Change/Convert Wire Type
Changes between wire types and converts lines to wires. Use the grid control to sort and select the wire types for easy modification.
Copy Wire Number
|Inserts extra wire numbers anywhere on a wire network. These copies follow the network's main wire number attribute. If AutoCAD Electrical modifies it, then any wire number copies on the network also update. Extra wire numbers go on their own layer that is defined in the Define Layers dialog box. If you assign a color to this layer that is different than the normal wire number and fixed wire number layers, then it is easy to tell them apart from the network's main wire number.|
Copy Wire Number (In-Line)
Inserts extra wire numbers such that they appear in-line with the wire rather than above or below the wire. These copies follow the network's main wire number attribute; if AutoCAD Electrical modifies it then any wire number copies on the network also update. Extra wire numbers go on their own layer that is defined in the Define Layers dialog box. If you assign a color to this layer that is different than the normal wire number and fixed wire number layers, then it is easy to tell them apart from the network's main wire number.
Adjust In-Line Wire/Label Gap
Adjusts the gap between the wire and the wire number text of wire numbers that are in-line with the wire.
Move Wire Number
Moves an existing wire number from one segment of the network to another.
Lengthens a wire until it meets another wire or an AutoCAD Electrical component.
Bends a wire in a right angle and makes 3 right angle turns to avoid or add geometry. When a wire is defined at a right angle you can modify the wire and create a new right angle bend while maintaining the original wire connections to the components.
Highlights all wires and displays wire number to wire segment relationships.
Helps troubleshoot problems with unconnected or shorted wires and invalid wire crossing gap pointers by single stepping through and highlighting each connected wire of the selected wire network.
Flip Wire Number
Flips the wire number across its associated wire.
Toggle Wire Number In-line
Switches the wire number between above or below and in-line. If the selected wire number is in-line, it toggles to above or below based on the default Wire Number Placement setting in the Drawing Properties dialog box. If it starts as above or below, the selected wire number toggles to in-line.
Toggle Angled Tee Markers
Toggles an existing angled tee connection symbol (or windowed symbols) through a total of 4 possible orientations. Right-click to toggle through the various tee connection orientations, and press ESC when the appropriate one displays. This replaces any dot tee symbols with angled tee symbols, and then toggles through the 4 possible orientations for each.
Flip Wire Gap
Flips the gap to the other wire. AutoCAD Electrical makes the gapped wire solid and flips the gap/loop to the crossing wire(s).
Delete Wire Gap
Removes a gap/loop that is no longer needed in an existing wire.
Check/Repair Gap Pointers
|Verifies that the invisible Xdata pointers on both sides of a wire gap/loop are valid. If not, appropriate pointers are established.|
Edit Wire Sequence
Predefines a wire network's connection sequence, either in a single drawing or across multiple drawing files.
Show Wire Sequence
Shows the wire sequence defined using the Define Wire Sequence tool. If the wire sequence crosses multiple drawings and you try to view the sequence as an animation, a dialog box listing the off-drawing wire connection information displays so that you can indicate to go to the other drawings to continue viewing the sequence.
Update Signal References
Updates cross-reference information for two types of cross-reference symbols. Wire number signal arrow symbols and standalone cross-reference symbols.
|Fan In/Out - Single Line Layer|
Defines a special layer or set of layers for the wires going out of a Fan In/Out source marker and the wires coming into a destination marker.
|List Signal Code|
Follows a signal from a specific source or destination symbol and lists the signal code references.
|Show Signal Paths|
Displays signal source and destination paths on the active drawing.
|Multiple Cable Markers Update|
Updates cable marker assignments defined or edited in a from/to listing.
