Selecting by an Item's ID Name (Find-Select)

In the Home tab, click  Find-Select to find an item by its item type and ID name.

Figure 1: Find Item Dialog Box

Initially, the dialog box displays all equipment items and protective devices. You can begin typing the name of the item to find in the ID Name of Item to Find box to filter the list. When All Equipment is selected, the item type precedes the item name for your reference.

You can also select an Item Type to filter the list to just those types of items.

In this example, we are selecting a bus with the ID name of “BUS-4.”

  1. In Item Type, select the type of equipment—for example, bus. Only equipment present in the one-line is displayed.
  2. The ID Name of Item to Find list contains the ID names of all the available buses in the one-line. Select the desired ID name—in this example, Bus-4. If you double-click on the item, it is selected and centered on the one-line, but the dialog box remains open so you easily move to different locations on the one-line or can select additional items.
  3. To select another item without clearing items already selected, select the Additive Select check box. This enables you to select and highlight more than one item on the one-line.
  4. Click OK. The selected item is shown centered on the one-line. If Additive Select was used, the last selected item is shown centered on the one-line.

If you close and reopen the Find Item dialog box, it remembers the last options you selected.
