I was wondering is there a way to rename a symbol so that the name appears in the schedule will be as required rather than the CA symbol name. eg. 2 way ceiling register, I want to rename it as supply air to reflect in my schedule. Is it possible? Any suggestions how i can achieve that?

Is this a trick question?

 

Open it and rename.

Are you renaming in plan or the library?

 

If the object is already in the plan and you rename it in the library, only the library changes.

Thank you Eric for the info. I renamed it, but didn't realize I had to replace it in the plan. It worked now as you instructed. Thank you Eric.

Just to be clear, the symbol in the plan didn't necessarily need to be replaced.  You could have just renamed the symbol in the plan.

Just a slight point to add as I have seen this basic situation twice today.  Once you have placed the item it is no longer tied to your user library and becomes a placed object in the plan.  Deleting the item in your user library or changing it in any way does not change the already placed item in your plan file or any others.

      I am looking for a solution on how to insert schedules into Layout. I have tried converting the schedule while in a Plan to a Cad block and then inserting into layout by Copy/Paste, but this deleted the Note # specific to each line item and I would then have to manually add them for each line item on the layout page.
       
      Here is a picture from a Chief layout where I have blue circled the schedule showing that Chief has inserted it into layout. Any ideas?

      I'm looking for a Gas Range symbol or how to callout a Gas Range on a MEP Plan.
      I tried searching google and this site all I got was Line drawings for a range.
       
      Thanks,
      Nick

      Hello, Is it possible to create a ceiling assembly schedule in CA? I could not find one, nor an option to assign to a custom schedule. Any tips?

      We have limited space on our layout page and more pages than can fit. I cannot seem to find a way to do columns. The only option is to shrink the font but that will not be an option as the city requires a minimum font size. All I can come up with is to do a manual text box. This seems like there should be an easy solution to this as I know plan sets that are 60-80 pages and you would need multiple columns to show all the pages. Thought?
