    Command for a line with arrow on both ends

    +1 by me, Wanted this for a long time too. Maybe a hot key to hold while drawing line, that would add arrows ?

    11x17 blank page

    Yes, Open a new layout. Then; File > Print > Drawing Sheet Setup, to get the size you want.
  4. Post the plan so it can be checked out.
  5. Hi Joe, If by cleaning up layer sets, you mean deleting unused layers, you may be able to, but there is no way to have a layer report the on the sets it is used in that I have seen. There is a delete button in the layer properties, but I do not know how to activate it. In my snip, it is greyed out even though the layer selected is one I made.

    Non-C.A. Electrical Resources for Permits

    Searching for 'single line drawing', the first hit was for "smartdraw" Electrical Design Software. Electrical Design Software We have all seen these diagrams before; automobile wiring diagrams etc. Lines showing wire paths, and standard symbols for components. Must be symbols for outlets and lighting as well as other architectural features. Possibly to make sure you do not overload circuits. Never have had to do this, hope not to have to either.

    TV symbols and images

    You can use material painter to place artwork; photos, paintings, etc. on the TVs in the library. Works well ,leaving the bezel not painted, just paints the screen

    Roof Vent - creating a symbol

    Have you followed the procedure for making a symbol in a 3D view ? (Which is, delete every thing using delete surface tool, except what you want the symbol to be, then convert) I think you would have to make one for each desired pitch. Sometimes I make a simple example of my building with the object I want to make into a symbol to simplify reducing faces to just what I need.

    Deleting duplicate catalogs in my Library Browser

    Also, drag them down and into the Trash folder, where they can be available for a while until you are sure nothing in them is needed
