Print Full Panel Schedules to 8.5x11 Sheets

Print full panel schedules, exactly as shown on the drawing, to a printer using 8.5x11 paper.

One specific use for these panel schedules would be to be submitted to Labor and Industries in Washington state for review.

        Expand the feature for printing panel schedules to add within the field equipment.

        Local AHJ (Washington State L&I Electrical Plan Review) requires separate 8.5x11 equipment schedules for panels, switchboards, etc as part of the plan review process. Expand the existing command to print the actual schedule shown on the electrical drawings to print to 8.5x11 AND print to a single .pdf file or printer that can be submitted to L&I EPR. This would save a lot of time setting up 8.5x11 viewports for each panel schedule.

        The current workaround for this request is to insert the panel schedules as normal. Use layout tabs to create the 8.5x11 sheets. Plot the layouts using the standard AutoCAD PLOT command.

        Tip: You can right-click on a tab and select "Move or Copy" to create a copy of a layout tab. Create one that looks right with your titleblock and viewport and scaling set up correctly. Then copy it for the other schedules.
