Panel wire selection

I am trying to define wire sizes on one panel in AutoCAD Electrical.  The panel is connected to 5 other panels. 


In Circuit Manager, the wires all say they are "undefined".  When I try to click on them to define them, I can't figure out how to modify them.  Any ideas on how to modify the wire size or define the wires?

Wire types are defined in the schematic.  You add wire types via the Create/Edit Wire Type dialog.  It makes most sense to add all your common wire types to the "smart" template that you use to start each new Electrical drawing.
