Can I change the irrigation symbol offset from mouse click when placing spray heads? I tried looking in the documentation without success.

Brian,
The system auto shifts the heads symbol in from the insertion point so the symbol lands right within the corresponding coverage arc. This way you don't have overlapping symbols when sharing the same edge, placed on opposite sides of that edge.

Is there something you were hoping to achieve? Any examples you might be able to send over so we can see what you are after?

Sure, I normally try to make the plan as clear as possible. Usually 20 scale. When I get to areas that are tight I end up moving the heads to the outside of the areas, where the pipe is just inside the adjacent hardscape line. Image attached.
I mostly do 20-scale drawings, too. I set my symbols in preferences to 70%; that reduces crowding and the prints are still legible (24 x 36 sheets). One way you might try.

That is a great suggestion, Tom. I would also venture to say you might try and test out different symbol styles, as the square symbols are a bit bigger than the others, simply by the shape. Keep in mind that the system is offsetting exactly the width of the symbol.

I would also suggest simply placing the head just outside the edge since you know where it will be positioned from insertion point.
