I would like to know how you edit symbols or CAD blocks.
I don’t have much experience creating my own objects so I usually download them from pages like 3D Warehouse.
Most of the times I need to make changes or remove elements included in these objects so I just load the symbol, go to Edit CAD block and try to modify what I need in the CAD Block window.
When the object is ready, I just add it to the library, but when I try to reload again the symbol previously created I can’t see it in the 3D view.
I’m sure I’m missing some steps or, probably, I can’t understand how symbols work.
Many thanks for the help!

I'm trying to update my electrical schedule with all the fixtures I'm using on a plan. Some of the electrical symbols require a wall to be able to be placed on the plan.
How can I get a copy of the symbol to place in my schedule without having to add a wall to do it?
For those of you that perform electrical load calculations or panel schedules for the electrical service on your projects, what resources have been helpful to you? Have you created any templates or worksheets for yourself to make this an easier process? Would you be interested in having a template in chief architect that another user has made?
I'm curious who would be interested in sharing tips/tricks or anything that could be shared to used in chief architect. I have some things I've developed for my own use but not sure if others would find this useful or how many users incorporate this into their plans and services.
Here's a few links I found really helpful:

On a 2-story house, I display all roof planes on one floor (typically the first floor) for the roof view plan. But for the electrical plan, I'd like to show the second floor roof on the second floor so I can indicate where the soffit lighting is. Can I have a roof plan that shows all roof planes and also show the roof planes separately on the electrical plan? If so, how?
