Changing light switches

Recommended Posts

I have a plan that I am trying to change the light switch style from standard switch to a deco rocker switch. Is it possible to change them all at one time or do I have to completely redo the entire electrical plan? I am currently having to go through and delete and replace each individual switch. When I delete the switch it deletes the circuit attached to it. Is there a simpler way to do this? I am fairly new to CA and Im sure there is a simple way to do this.

Try the Replace from Library Tool>Whole Plan or Whole Floor ...may work but YMMV....

Thank you Mick! It worked. All I need to do now is change the color from bone to brite white. Thank you so much for the help.

In your Plan Defaults try changing the Default Electrical Colour to White

 

Defaults>Materials >Electrical

 

and Change your Electrical Defaults to Dacora Style incase you place more  ( do this in your template file if you use Dacora style all the time too)

 

Defaults>Electrical>General Electrical> (for Outlet and switch at least)

If you don't have other Bone objects, you can probably use the material eyedropper to change the color to white on all at once using the Material Painter Floor, Room, or Plan Mode.
