    Half- or Full-Dim Receptacles and Designer Software

    I couldn't seem to find the special wall receptacles used for dimming (half-dim/half-hot or both dim) in the Toolbox of the HomeWorks QS Designer software. All of the other accessory receptacles are there (tamper-resistant, GFCI etc). Am I not looking in the right place?

    My work-around was to create a "fixture" called "Half-Dimmed Receptacle" and then add the part number to the "Line Items" under the "Design" tab.

    If I'm missing where to look, please help! If it's not in the software my wish would be that it gets added (along with the small plugs that have to be attached to the lamp's cord in order for it to fit into the special receptacle).

    I didn't see them either. Your work-around seems the best. Keep in mind, the receptacle doesn't actually do any dimming. You still need to assign that load to a RPM or other device.

    I'm aware of that - it would just be nice to have it automatically be added to the BOM report.
