Build a hierarchy in AF for all these switches based on a template (even a flat structure for now, structure it later!), then build one graphic, and assign it to that template (right click, assign to template). Then you can simply drag and drop the elements for each switch and it will build the graphic for you. When it comes time to change the symbols, change the template once and you can then use the "Update symbol" button and watch all graphics be updated to the new template.
The other alternative is to use VBA to automate updating the switches, but the AF symbol builder really makes it so easy that I never bother with VBA anymore where possible....
Here's a good video from OSI on AF display builder!!
Thanks for reply Kelian.
In my Processbook, AF display builder addin is not available.
My processbook version is 18.104.22.1689 .is it a version problem?
Yes, definitely worth upgrading your Processbook to at least version 2014 (v.22.214.171.124) to get the display builder support, I have been using 2015 for some time now with absolutely no problems (v.126.96.36.1994)
