Good day all!
Here's some recent improvements and new features on Electra.
1. Plugin that generates list of connections for a reference
Previously, if you need to check the wiring of only one component, a whole connection report needs to be generated to check the wiring one by one. This is quite problematic as the connection report will be two or three pages long, and is flooded with information. This causes difficulty to focus on the wiring connections that you want to check. To combat this issue, we made a plugin that enables you to only generate the connections of a chosen component by selecting its reference. A list of connections will be generated on the top left of the page, and you can move it to anywhere you like. Now, you can read or check the connections clearly and do the wiring for one component at a time.
2. Tooltip to show drawing names in full on search results
We are aware that you might have drawings with long names that are similar at the beginning but different. Therefore, it can be troublesome to identify the drawings you need from the search result. Don't worry, we got you. The search results are now improved so that when you hover over the names of your drawings, you can see their names in full.
3. The Fitting Manifold symbol
First up, we’ve got a new symbol for hydraulic and pneumatic drawings that is utilized in pipe fittings: the Fitting Manifold symbol. You may find it in the pneumatic or hydraulic stencils under the ‘Miscellaneous’ tab. To customize the symbol and its port numbers, simply right click and choose ‘Set Manifold’, then key in the values you need, as below:
