I am adding an electrical legend into my layout, and realized that all of the symbols that I used for custom lighting, etc. are not in the legend. I tried pulling in an electric schedule with the idea of breaking it, then using the symbols to add to my legend, but it wont do that. Is there another way to bring in the correct symbols from my plan into an electrical legend?
Is there a way to take a single polyline I have drawn and turn it into a CAD block that I can then add to the library? I have 2D polylines that represent steel trim pieces that I often use in conjunction with 2D detail drawings and cross sections.
So I figured out a new way to make cabinets with extended stiles that will read the proper width in schedule (that is will not include the extended stile in the width since it is an add on when ordered that way)
The issue I'm having is getting the extended stile to show in plan as part of the symbol. I've never been really good at getting adjusting CAD blocks and making them work with a symbol.
I've tried an assortment of ways to change the block to show as part of the symbol with no luck. Is it possible?
Chief will not always show a cabinet door in plan to begin with, but I've tried pretty much every option without success.

I am VERY new to this program, and until a few weeks ago I was pushing a pencil around my drawing board.
I was watching the instructional video on creating a CAD block of the as-built drawings to be used as an overlay/mask on my plan view so I could move walls and see where the original walls were. In creating the block, I think I did everything correct, but I accidentally clicked on exploded view of the block. it did not seem to do anything, however when I move the block to my drawing, a few parts and pieces of the drawing are missing.
is there a way to undo this error? or, should I start over?
