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..

      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?

      Good evening everyone, hope you are all well! I have had this problem for awhile and I have searched the forums for this issue before. The living room shown in the jpeg is a 2-story height space in a tiny home (84" first floor, 60" Loft). I want to have the electrical layout displayed on the ground floor and also have the recessed lights in the vaulted ceiling in the floor above. The problem is the vaulted ceiling is drawn on the 2nd floor. The obvious workaround is to draw these fixtures on the 2nd floor, CAD to detail, and copy them as a separate layer on the ground floor. It is important that the client sees the lights in relation to furniture, cabinets, etc. Let me know if it is possible to combine the first and second floor into one room in the living room. As you can see in the photo, the ceiling is registering only 84" above the floor. Thanks!

      Hello Friends- I am working on a distillery plan and was wondering if there was a catalog or CA source for distillery symbols like stills, fermenters, mashtuns, chillers, etc. 
      Thank You In Advance

      I have created a column out of Polyline solids and moldings.  Is there any way to get an outlet to place into this surface?  If there is not a way, what are your suggestions on what I do?  It is a dummy column framed out that surrounds a steel post, there is plenty of room for an outlet to be placed within the open interior space.  How do I place the outlet without there being a wall or a cabinet in this location?  Please see the attached image.  The red arrow points to where I would like to place an outlet.
       
      Thank you for your help!
