The available fault current is available to place on the one-line diagram, but not the "set fault @ switchboard" value. The available fault current includes motor contribution, and is not what plan reviewers are looking for at the service entrance on the one-line. They are looking for the value given by the Utility company in its table.1 vote
Good idea. This will be included in DM Electrical 8.3.
Create a command that would "unbreak" a circuit that was broken.1 vote
This feature will be available in Electrical 8.0
On 240/120V-3P-4W systems, the current requirement is that Phase B is the high leg. Should be allowed to select Phase C as the high leg.
On 240/120V-3P-4W systems, the current requirement is that Phase B is the high leg. Should be allowed to select Phase C as the high leg. Should allow 3-pole breaker to start on any phase, should allow 2-pole breaker on any phase. Must prohibit 1-pole breaker on the high leg.1 vote
This is completed for DM Electrical 8.3.
Be able to remove a callout from a single piece of equipment on the drawing.1 vote
This was added in DM Electrical 8.2.

Also when a panel/switch board is inserted we currently draw the outline of the panel and the lug and/or main OPD is placed automatically. We would like to place the lug and/or OPD first so it is easier to line up devices.1 vote
This will be included in Design Master Electrical 8.4.
revise generator schedule block to remove main breaker (it defaults to 60 amps) remove or allow input for bus amps, and show kw/kva1 vote
The default customization in DM Electrical 8.5 includes new header blocks for schedules.
Add the option to merge two circuits together.
One of the circuits would end up as a space with nothing connected to it, no fixed loads, and no locked breaker or wire sizes.
The other would have all of the devices that were originally connected to the two devices, the sum of the fixed loads from the two circuits, and all the fixed breaker and wire sizes from the two circuits.0 votes

Include an option to not draw a feeder line between devices on the one-line diagram. This would be useful when drawing the connections between devices and bus gutters.0 votes
This feature is included in Design Master Electrical 8.4.
Take two circuits, both with devices connected to them, and combine them. All the devices will be on one of the circuits, and the other circuit will be left a space.0 votes
This is implemented in DM Electrical 8.3.
When an IES file is assigned to a light fixture, I would like DM to copy the IES file into the project directory. If the original IES file is moved, the project is unaffected.0 votes
Finished for DM Electrical 8.2.
If you circuit two items with different descriptions, the order of those descriptions in the circuit is random. You will get descriptions of "Primary, Secondary" and "Secondary, Primary". Make the circuit descriptions combine in a consistent manner. The default will be to sort them alphabetically. Include an option to force an different ordering on descriptions when alphabetical is not appropriate.0 votes
This is implemented for DM Electrical 8.3.
With all the other information that can be inserted into the One-line diagram (feeder size & length, etc.) it would be helpful to also add Voltage Drop percentage for each feeder as well. For longer feeders this is required and it would make it much easier to see the big picture if it was all in one place rather than possibly spread out over several sheets for larger jobs.0 votes
Good news! This feature is already completed and will be included in DM Electrical 8.4.
Use the 'Room Number' field to specify where loads are located in the panel schedules. The 'Description' field in the panel would automatically be filled with the description linked to the load, then the room numbers. i.e. RECEPTACLE 105, 108, 110, 100 or LIGHTING 209, 210, 211, 212.0 votes
This feature already exists. See the “Room Labels” section at the bottom of this page for information on turning it on:
