Displaying Catalog Numbers On The Symbol

imageYesterday a user asked me how to display catalog info on the symbols. Easy simply set the Invisible property on the CAT attribute to No. Then position and resize it as needed. However this user also wanted the Multiple Catalog entries to display as well. So if a contact block was added to this symbol it would display under the wire as an addition number.

Well the short answer is the attributes in question are named CAT01, CAT02, ect. Pictured below is my new exploded symbol with a now visible CAT and then I added CAT01, CAT02, and CAT03.
