Make all Panel/Device selections drop downs
Some windows allow you to choose a panel or device (receptacle, lvd, light, etc) by a drop down box. Others require you to slowly click next/previous. It would be great if all the next/previous windows were converted to the drop down box.
I feel the benefits are pretty obvious.
We will definitely keep the Next and Previous buttons.
Editing Multiple Devices (which probably does deserve a different topic if it is something you would like to see changed): For items on the drawing, we have the "Edit Multiple" commands you can use to change everything but equipment. That you do have to change one-at-a-time, so one request might be to add an "Edit Multiple Equipment Connections" command.
For items in schedules (such as light fixture types), we do not have a way to edit more than one at a time, which might be another request you want to make.
@eric I agree, to be able to edit multiple devices would be a nice addition, but I don't know if this would be the best way to do it. I think a separate window would be better, along the lines of the multiple device edit for already inserted items. probably better for a different wishlist entry.
This could make it easier to edit multiple devices if you were able to select multiple devices and change the field. I picture this working like the AutoCAD properties window. If I want to change the X-value of multiple blocks, I can select them all and then change the x-value field. If the selected items have different values there it is noted with "*VARIES*" in the field.
perhaps keep both the Prev/Next buttons but also allow for the drop down? I know there are times where if I'm changing the same field for multiple items it's easy to change the field, click next, save, change the next items value, repeat.
This is a good idea. I'll need to think through what unexpected problems it could create, but it seems like it should work.
Until we get a chance to implement it, you can use the "Find" button to select the item you want from a list, rather than being limited to the "Next" and "Previous" buttons.
