Automatically generated schedules…items that are added to a cabinet box such as a wall oven or lavatory show up in the schedule but I cannot seem to edit/control the name like I can with a free-standing item like a toilet or fridge. I have tried opening the cabinet dialogue box for that item to alter the individual component data so that the output in my schedule says what I need it to, but aside from renaming the cabinet label and assigning the cabinet as a plumbing fixture I don’t seem to be able to have the right control. Can anyone point me to a tutorial or reference a topic where this is covered? I keep chasing my tail searching for any tips and can’t find anything specific to my issue.
My Note Label symbols are scaling larger than the layer font for the note text. This causes schedules to come in much larger when dropped into Layout. Schedules are created in a CAD DETAIL page in the PLAN file then dropped onto a layout page at the same scale as the drawing view the notes are linked. Please help with this anomaly. I have included a PDF with Screen shots of a sample layout page, Schedule and Layer settings.
Thank you for anyoone who may be able to shed some light on this issue.

I'm trying to update my electrical schedule with all the fixtures I'm using on a plan. Some of the electrical symbols require a wall to be able to be placed on the plan.
How can I get a copy of the symbol to place in my schedule without having to add a wall to do it?
I'm looking for input on how to best use schedules in my .pln file and on my layout pages. Per my screenshots, I have created several note schedules. They are on separate CAD Details in my .pln template. I have copied and pasted them to my .pln for reference.
I try to put the applicable schedule on the layout page that it corresponds to so tradesmen don't have to reference just one notes page. The preliminary note schedule is used just for preliminary work; likewise, the roof notes on the roof plan layout page, site notes on the site plan layout page, and remodel notes on remodel layout page. The floor plan layout page usually contains the construction, plumbing, HVAC, cabinet, and trim note schedules.
Is there a way to place the note schedules on the applicable pages of my layout template? This would eliminate opening each CAD Detail and sending it to a layout page each time I work on a new layout for a specific plan.
If there is not a way to have the note schedules on my layout template pages (before I save it as a specific customer layout), is there a more efficient way than what I am currently doing?
Thanks in advance for your input.
