Distinguishing Outlets or Other Symbols - Best Way

Recommended Posts

I'm in search of the "best" way to identify outlets in Floor Plan View.

 

I suppose this would be similar to distinguishing other symbols from each other into groups.

 

My first attempt was to just label them by Circuit Breaker Number. I can't figure out how to put a number on the symbol. Second attempt was to change the color.

 

I see everything in Floor Plan View is Black on White so perhaps colors are out.

 

Also, any ideas on best plan to deal with a second outlet directly above another? For example one outlet at 13" above the floor and a second one at 40" above the floor.

They should all be on Electrical layer set using electrical annotation. There all other symbols, dimensions, roof planes, furniture, framing, etc details should be turned off. [i keep furniture on during the design]

 

Same I never turn on electrical on the default layer set. Layout dedicate separate page or two to electrical.
