Video Tutorial: Macros in DesignSpark Electrical

In DesignSpark Electrical, a macro is a part of scheme that you have already drawn and you want to re-use in another drawing or in another project. Macros are stored in a library. 

Macros can be accessed from the task pane and in case you do not have the star icon showing up here, go to the view tab on the top ribbon and toggle the star icon to show it. There are a handful of default categories shown here, which we can edit or delete by right-clicking on them or we can right click below and create a new group, so that we can organize macros in a way that makes sense.


In this video tutorial, we learn how to create our own scheme macro and assign it to a custom category.
