How can we improve Design Master?

Total Load in Project

Please add capability to total loads for the project before the circuiting is complete.

I would like to have a load sheet that keeps track of the total project load.

What I use now is a modified panel shedule that only shows the loads for a dummy panel I create called service. I connect all the panels together and then to Service. This gives me a total load analysis for the project, but only after the design is complete. I need to be able to confirm my loads and service sizing at the design development stage before circuiting.

A consideration would be to provide the added ability to define areas and tabulate the load by area and by project. For now, the total project capability would be great!

        This would be a nice feature. It could help in preliminary design and budgeting. I am always being asked early on in projects what the service size will be. On a larger project it can be difficult to pin down or even make a good guess until the whole project is circuited.
