Thanks Buddy.. I finally managed to solve it. It can stay in a perfect line without merging each other.

My solution is select object > Open Symbol

Uncheck all this in Option > Option ( previously I checked Switch + 220 Volt + Switched )

I just unchecked all those.

I dunno if this is the correct way to solve it, But it work for me.

It maybe the Switch Option, as I think Switches are hardcoded to merge (gang) together if touching ...Outlets may do the same thing? , but should be easy to test.

Yeah.. I spend 1 day to figure out the best way to make it not to merge each other. And I admit it is good to automatically merge to make it '2 gang or 3 gang' type. But the problem is it will merge switch and socket together when they both stay next to each other and at the same height. Btw thank you..

      How do you get the 2D symbols in the electrical legend to show up at the same size that they are in the plan (or a size that is desired)?  Is there a way to control the size of the 2D symbols in electrical legends?  The 2D symbols come in so large that they blow the legends right off the page.  If I scale the legend down, the text becomes illegible.

      Hi,
      New to Chief Architect and a Mac Use with Version 2021.  I can't seem to find the Centerline Symbol in this program, yet when I google it, some videos show the symbol in Dimensions.  However, nothing is there for this symbol in this version.   Please advise.
      Thanks!

      Building on the videos Eric (Solver) made recently...I did this video to show how you can construct a tapered paneled column in plan view, using p-solids and a molding polyline. It's a fast method...and the best part is you don't have to use a 3D molding polyline.
       
      Check it out....

      Hi Guys and Girls.
       
      I've been away form this forum for a long time, maybe some of you still remember me.
      I had another job for a few year and I didn't have time to be here, how ever Covid struck and I lost the other job.
      So to make some extra money I will offer my symbols for sale and also take custom symbol orders, if you want something special I make it for you.
       
      You can see a few of my symbols, old and new on my facebook page.

      If you like what you see send me a PM or an E-mail.
       
      Best regards

      Hi
      I wonder if it is possible to somehow create a symbol out of these or similar free dwg Autocad blocks?
      I mean not to import but to trace and create a 3d polyline?
