Sometimes a simple box depicting the physical boundaries of a device is all that is required on a panel layout. If no symbol is specified for Layout_Symbol in the part number record, Insert Symbol By Device ID will use the X, Y, and Z values in the part number record to create a box for the user to place.
A box with dimensions matching the Width(X), Height(Y), and Depth(Z) fields of the part number will appear at the mouse pointer for placement.
