The layout of the devices is created in specific drawings. These are generated automatically according to the configuration parameters.


When this command is launched, a dialog box opens allowing you to select the locations requiring a cabinet layout.


1.     Check the boxes for the locations for which you want to generate drawings.


You can also generate a specific drawing for all the electrical project locations (first line of the list).
