    Welcome to the forum!

    If I understand you correctly, you would like to include images of symbols that represent electrical fixtures into the Electrical Fixtures Schedule.

    If that is your question, the answer is still no. As a workaround, you can create a legend of electrical fixtures and then place the legend next to the Electrical Fixture Schedule on the sheet.

      Yes, that's exactly what I meant!
      Thanks, I've been doing the Legend-Schedule thingy........aaah, but it would be nice once Revit finally decide to join the two

        I totally agree. That would be a nice feature to see in future Revit versions.

          Not that I´m a big fan of add ons, but maybe Dynamic Legend from Tools4Revit is something that you´d want to take a look at ?

            The only way I can think of that you could do it wouldn't be pretty, but it would work.

            You could make your own Font of the symbols you wanted, and then use that custom Font on your schedule.

            With common electrical symbols, there might already be a Font out there that you could use.

            There are several programs that let you make a custom Font, and they are pretty cheap. It's just very time consuming, and frankly, kinda boring to do.

                SimAll, can see that you´ve made other posts after this one... so I´m guessing that you´ve found it ? If not, please let me know if you need any help on the forum - Oh, and Welcome aboard BTW
