Insert cable command is very convienient when trying to insert a straight cable with some natural sag. However when trying to draw cable that could wrap around a piece of steel, grounding cable, there is no way to control where the cable goes. In MS we could use a b spline which let us add as many vertiices as we needed. Is there some way to do this in Bentley Substation?
This is an example of just an A to B connection that we would need to tweek a bit to show it not really go through the steel as it is showing. What I was explaining I don't have a actual example of but this serves the sam purpose. What would be nice is if we could be able to manipulate this cable so it does not go through the metal. We would like to accomplish this with the most minimal steps involved. Extruding a b spline is an acceptable option other than the process for adding a part number. Symbol on the fly will not account for length. Maybe the true problem here is the Symbol on the fly command. Right now Symbol on the fly creates a element but what if we could select an element to become the symbol? Hopefully that isn't confusing.

I have submitted the request to be able to adjust the path of inserted cable or convert a b-spline to a true cable as enhancement TFS 343826.
