Object Data and RUS Imperial

I am using the Place Pole command in AUD.  I want to define object data and use RUS Imperial, but maybe I shouldn't do both.  My goal is to set default pole height, class, and top.  When I use Place Pole, the height and class are fine for existing but I need a different class as a new pole default.  Possibly adding a conductor will generate pole tops.

P.S. General information is great.  I will be posting this on the AUD forum for specific information.

Hi Donald,

Once you place a pole in AutoCAD Utility Design, you can view/edit Feature information. The following help file explains this process in more detail:

After you attach overhead conductor, the pole head will be determined by AUD.

Place Pole and Display Manager

10-01-2013 11:44 AM in reply to: JeffPaquette6500

Can I change the symbol display before using the Place Pole command?  What are the best steps to take if I want a Display Manager layer for poles?  I already have symbols I prefer based on pole status.  I need to use something besides the Display Manager?

Object symbology

Maybe there should be a symbology setup tool.  I don't know.  It has turned out that AUD in less user-friendly for me than I originally thought it would be.
