Add custom signal arrow styles

The icon menu graphics that display for the various signal styles are bitmap files saved to your C:\Program Files [(x86)]\Autodesk\Acade {version}\Acade\ folder where AutoCAD Electrical's Insert Signal utilities and Drawing Properties tool can access them.

  1. Create the style in AutoCAD.
  2. Zoom in to the new arrow style.
  3. Save the file as a bitmap using the following name definition: A_STYLExh.bmp where "x" is the arrow style 1-9.
    Note

    If the resulting bitmap is too small or off-center, open the source drawing in AutoCAD again. Resize your AutoCAD graphics window so that it is more square. Center the image and resave. Repeat until you are satisfied with the result.
