  1. Is there a way to link the individual devices created in ConnectCAD to custom symbols in Spotlight? What we are wanting to do is take our MEP sets that we create with custom symbols with an attached record in Spotlight and link them to the individual devices that will have wires traveling through that MEP location. Here is an example of what I am looking for: SWR-1 (ConnectCAD device) is linked to MEP location AV-101 (attached record has ID of AV-101) RTR-1 (CC Device) is linked to MEP location AV-201 (attached record has ID of AV-201) Wire V-111 connects the 2 devices When we run an All Layers Cable report, it will show that for cable number V-111, it has a Src_dev_name of SWR-1 and a loc of AV-101 and connects to dst_dev_name RTR-1 with a location of AV-201. The goal is to tie all the devices to a location so when we do an All Layers Cable report, we are able to create a wire list that has the location that the wires will be pulled through. Currently we have to manually sort the cable report multiple times in multiple ways to figure out which wires need to be pulled from one location to another. It is a very manual process and we would like to be able to automate it as much as we can. One possibility I thought of that doesn't seem to work would be to allow for rooms inside of Rooms. That would allow us to put the SWR-1 device in the AV-101 room which is inside the Production Room. Currently, it appears only the outer most room is attached to the device for location reporting. Another option that could work (although not really linked and wouldn't track changes) would be some type of user data field that is part of every ConnectCAD device that we could type the MEP location into. I found this link which appears to do something similar for doors/windows in Spotlight, but couldn't find anything equivalent for ConnectCAD devices. Is this possible?
