Hi, I got a parent symbol with multiple child of the same symbol on different page. The Parent's Xref showing every child location, but the Child's Xref or only pointing at parents, and not at other child. Is there a way to make it appear every other child Xref ?
Sorry for my bad English !
As far as I'm aware, the industry standard is to have the child block point to the parent block only. I haven't seem ANY standard ask for each child contact to have a full list of other child contacts.
This is due to the parent (usually a coil or something similar) normally being located in a fairly open area of the dwg while the contacts and such may be in a congested area of the dwg and not have room for a list of contacts underneath the child component.
To place the full cross reference list with each contact would take up a lot of room on the dwg and drafters would have to have huge gaps between components, rungs and anything else to accomadate the cross referencing.
