Wire Size @ Panel Schedules - voltage drop

I am wondering whether there is a way to have some branch circuits in a panel schedule with auto wire sizing and others within the same schedule manual input (for the purpose of increased size due to voltage drop).


Is this possible or does the entire wire size column receive the parameter specified at the header?

I don't believe you can have a single column read different parameters.

Our engineers still don't trust the wire sizing in Revit, so we just hide the wire size column and put a conduit & wire sizing schedule on one of the sheets. Maybe one day.

Same for us. Many of the wire size, circuiting, and wiring features in revit electrical simply are not ready for "prime time" yet. This is one of them IMO.
