what determines the Instrument Summary count

Recommended Posts

Which piece of ID does the Inst Summary use to count units?


Each symbol has four:

3D Symbol Name

Model Name

Instr Type

Fixture ID


We have spare units of each type I do not wish to include in the count.  I’d like to give them a separate name to not include them.


Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Use the filter. You'll find it in OIP.

You can either filter by position, class, layer or if you really want to use the fields found in the record you can make a custom filter.

I personally just put the spares on a layer and filter then out.


Hope that helps, Merry Christmas!

The Summary matches instrument type and wattage for counting . The model name determines the text that displays in the Summary.
