AutoCAD Electrical 2017 Tip

Gary Bergero

If you work with large projects in AutoCAD Electrical, you probably are aware that an edit to one drawing in your project may take a while to complete. AutoCAD Electrical will search the project looking for references to that particular edit. For example, if you edit a pushbutton on a schematic, AutoCAD Electrical will search the project for a panel that contains that pushbutton so that the panel can be updated to match the schematic. If you make many edits in one day’s timeframe on a large project you will be waiting for Electrical to catch up with all of the references.

I suggest using “Project Task List” during your edit and put the updating on hold until you are ready for Electrical to perform all the updates to the project. To do this, choose “Task” in response to the Update other drawings prompt.


Now, your edits are on hold. Complete all edits that you need per drawing and put them on the Task List. Choose the “Project Task List” icon and let Electrical complete all the reference updating that is in the Task List.
