Is there an easy way, after having created a source and destination signal, to switch them?..ie source becomes destination and vice a versa.

Michel, You can swap them but it's not easy. Here's how: 1. Get the block name of the symbol (use DDATTE or LIST). Block name for source arrows will be something like "HAxSy" where "x" = "style" number and "y" = 1 for wire from right, 2 above, 3 from left, 4 from below. For a destination arrow symbol, it will be "HAxDy". 2. Use the AcadE SWAP BLOCK command and select "Swap a Block - one at a time" and "Pick new block from icon menu". Hit OK. 3. The icon menu dialog should display. In lower left-hand corner type in the new arrow block name, flipping the state of the 4th char of the block name from "S" to "D" or "D" to S" (example: if existing signal block is "HA1S2" then type in "HA1D2" to flip to a destination arrow). Hit OK. Maybe we should think about making the "Toggle NO/NC" command usable on these signal arrow symbols? Nate.

I like the idea of the Toggle command except that it becomes confusing to have so many functions on a single icon... I find it hard to remember that it does that, especially when not often used. How about a swap button on the edit dialog also? (I had a user request for this just this week too.)
