Lighting symbol PIOs


The lighting symbol PIOs could be enormously improved by the following:

1. Provide a field for the lighting circuit designation.

2. Allow the "Config label" to be dragged to the desired position. The current coordinate system is a tedious trial-and-error system, and the labels sometimes move when the text is changed.

3. The letter "R" for recessed fixtures should always be oriented horizontally, instead of rotating 90 degrees when the symbol is rotated.

4. When a wall fixture is scaled, the circle gets smaller but the line stays long. It should be smaller per drafting conventions.

5. It would be very convenient to have a OIP field for comments, so that the designer can add pertinent info when laying out fixtures. The comments would show up on the lighting fixture schedule.
