I'm using AutoCAD Electrical 2014. I'm having the same problem with older versions. I'm using a template from another company that they created. My terminals are not inserting alike. when I insert a terminal into a drawing, the first terminal in line is always inserted correctly the way I want. The next terminal in line is smaller, with attributes moved to different places than the first terminal. I've tried everything I know to try & fix this. Can someone please advise me on how to fix this problem.
Are you positive that the blocks are the same? VT0001 is used by ACE when you insert a terminal on a vertical bus/wire and HT0001 on a horizontal wire/bus.
The terminals on the left are vertical symbols (VT0001) and the terminals on the right are horizontal symbols (HT0001). Modify the horizontal symbol to match the vertical symbol.
I've never had this problem before. In other versions of CAD & other drawings, all I had to do was copy the component. All I did with this drawing was copy the coponent over. Would you tell me how to I change what you were talking about?
When you insert a symbol on a vertical wire it uses the vertical symbol when you insert it on a horizontal wire it uses the horizontal symbol. Look in the properties to find the block name.
Do a Swap/Update Block on the horizontal terminals. You should have the correct HT0001 in your library. It seems that the drawing you were given has a modified version of the HT0001 block.
