I am wanting to fan out a cable & source it to another drawing. I don't understand how to use the Fan In/Out Source & Destination Markers. When I try to use these markers, it combines all of my conductors to have the same wire number & color. I need to keep all conductors seperate from one sheet to the next. Please explain.
I would really, REALLY reccomend that you take a class in AutoCAD Electrical to learn this, and other functionalities of AcadE.
However, Doug McAlexander has already covered this here. A quick SEARCH (you should try it!) gives you THIS: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-Electrical/F
Please select "Accept As Solution" if this post answers your question. Kudos don't hurt either. ;-)
Well Gee a quick search brought me here.... to find and answer.... and all I see is a bunch of " it's allready answered / you should take a class comments" .... How can anybody find anything on this site ... as it's all full of people asking question and NO ONE answering directly. Please Autodesk go to WOWHEAD.com and learn what a properly manage Discussion Site LOOKS like.
I am not sure why you think you had to pay $700 to subscribe to the forum because it is free and we are not AutoCAD employees. In fact only a handful of AutoCAD employees even check this forum. The majority of us are users, just like yourself, who take the time out of our busy schedules to help each other out. Occasionally, we get requests from people that need more help than we can offer and suggest they take a class because this is a very complex piece of software requiring approx. 3 months to get proficient enough to start using it effectively.
Pardon us if we "come off' a little gruff at times...

This is a user forum hosted (paid for) by Autodesk. There is no fee to sign up. You can view all you like, but to post on the forum you must join, but there is no fee. I wish they would charge a fee because there have been those who post misinformation in at attempt to attract people to a competitive software instead. The competitors only allow registered users of their software to access their support forums. But this one has always been free. And yes, some things are better understood in a classroom setting where you can see, touch, and feel, and get help from an instructor.
