Vertically placed electrical symbols - how best handle in 2D

Recommended Posts

Hi,

newbie question:

 

In my geography, it is quite common to place multiple electrical switches vertically on walls. I have no trouble setting them at different heights, so it does look great in 3d.

 

However, this causes the 2d representation to have overlapping symbols. I can enhance the view by moving the visible labels so that they are overlapping. This helps with clarity. However, is there a way where I can move the visual electrical symbols in 2d a bit away from each other, and make an arrow or similar so that they still attach correctly to the 2d wall?

 

 I have made a very simple example in the drawing, depicting my ideal situation for 2d. When renderred in 3d, the two objects would be placed above each other with shared vertical center-line, as the two objects would be placed at different heights.

I would use a keyed note:

or a notation convention that is explained within your electrical symbol schedule:

Thanks Robert! Problem solved :)
