    Light Switch size

    It seems that I'm learning on the fly....but its a good thing.
    Is it possible to enlarge the size of the light switch on a plan view? (2D)
    My guess is through the Annotation?????

    Zooming in doesn't work for you? Seriously though: what do you mean by "enlarge"?

        Sorry Dawg; still unclear. The typical size of a single switch plate is 3 1/2" wide by 5" high. Do you want to scale it in the view, or change its physical dimensions?

          The switch plate and the box can stay the same. just the 2D representation in a floor plan shows up too small for the engineer's taste.

            You can edit the family to add 2D lines as large as you like.

              Then use symbols. This is common practice. We don't show plate geometry in plan; we show a symbol in its place. Are you in need of an electrical symbol library?

                same here that's how we show it.. thank you. I was referring to the symbol that is shown on the 2D floor plan. You called it a symbol would that be an annotation family edit?
