Region Connection Editor which lets you
define region connections on a Panel Layout drawing.
A region typically represents a single panel. You might
have one region for the items mounted on the door and another region for the
items mounted on the back panel. Therefore, by defining regions you are telling
the software which items are on the same panel.
This dialog contains a series of boxes that represent the
regions you have defined. Each box is labeled with the name of the region and
the name of the exit point(s) that you created for that region. Drag each
region box to a convenient position for creating connection lines between them
(you will be able to re-position the boxes later if necessary).
To create a connection between panels, drag an exit point
from one panel to the desired exit point on the next panel. A line will appear
between the two exit points. The line represents the route (raceway, conduit,
etc.) between the two regions. This line is elastic, so that if you move the
region boxes around in the dialog it will stay connected to the two exit
||Adds junction boxes to the connection diagram. These
are useful if you wish each region to have only one exit point. To add a
junction box, select the
Add Junction button. Junction boxes will be
labeled Junction-1, Junction-2, etc., by default. Junction boxes are also
useful if you wish to provide a path to connect a region to several other

Tests the region connections for the following
- Verifies each
junction box has at least two region connections connecting to it.
- Verifies each region
connection has a defined length attribute.
- Verifies each
connection point has a corresponding exit point on the layout pages.
- Verifies that each
region has at least one region connection connected to it.
- Verifies that exit
points fall within the boundary of the region.
Any problem conditions will be listed in the dialog.
Save and you will be prompted to define a
location where you can save the information to a text file.
