Duplex receptacles in the tools palette

Hello all,

I am teaching myself AutoCAD MEP and I downloaded the 2013 student version.  I found the electrical palette but I cannot for the life of me find the symbol for a duplex receptacle.  In the palette is the symbol for a twin unswitched socket.  But I want the duplex receptacle, a circle with two parallel lines, and I can't find it. 


Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am using 2014 but electrical items should be in the same place.  I found mine on the Power-Lighting tab of the tool palette in the electrical workspace.






And if that is somehow missing then you can pull the Style from the recepticle style drawings shown below.
