    What does "Display Wire Current Flow Direction" do?

      I have been doing a lot of simulating and playing around with VeSys and I have always wondered what does the Diplay Wire Current Flow Direction box do under the Electrical tab in Design Options.

       

      I have checked the box and unchecked the box and seen nothing change in my schematic.

       

      Is it one of those fake features to get your hopes up?

          Selecting that option should show graphically which direction the current flows, the linetype changes to one with arrows on i.e. ------->------>-------.

           

          This feature uses AutoCAD linetypes, the following changes to a drawing can prevent the "Display Current Flow Direction" from working:

           

          • Changing the default linetype of a wire away from "Continuous"
          • Purging the linetype _VeSys_Sneak from the drawing.  When the current flow direction is switched on it converts the linetype from Continuous to _VeSys_Sneak
          • Changing the default text style "Standard" font from "text.shx" to something else can change the appearance of the Wire Current Flow
