Print Panel Schedules to Place Inside Panels

Add a command to print panel schedules that can be placed inside panels. The panel schedule will have options to include some basic information in the header, and then list each circuit and the load description.

The width of the panel schedule will be variable to accommodate the various size sleeves that panels come with.

        After surveying the people who voted this, I discovered there were two different requests being made.

        1. Print panel schedules to place inside the panels. I changed this wish to be for this request. It will be implemented in DM Electrical 8.4.

        2. Print the exact same panel schedules as we display on the drawing, just on 8.5x11 sheets of paper. Uses for this include the permitting process in Washington state and general communication with the client. This request is a new wish you can vote for here:

        Print all the panel schedules complete in a standard format (options)

        Print the schedule that goes in the panel. Circuit # and load description to fit manufacturers schedule holder in panels. (SQD, EATON, etc)

        consider keeping the format to match the drawing file output. possibly a simple single command button to print all schedules on 8x11 landscape (user selects printer). possibly another button to provide options: print selected panel(s) to variable print output.

        The current workaround for this request is to insert the schedule on the drawing and then use the standard AutoCAD PLOT command to print them.

        How much customization of the schedules would you want to be able to have? Would there be any value to this command if the format of the output was fixed?
