Gang devices can be operated by phase in a switch plan when step is added manually

The manual step addition form does not disable the editing of phase buttons for gang devices in the same way that the control tool does.  So, it is possible to add a switch step on a gang device to operate a single phase.

If your system symbols have been configured so that there is no symbol for individual phases of gang devices (common practice), then you end up with the viewer displaying the "box" symbol for the device.

We would like to see the same edit checks performed on the control tool applied to the manual step addition form.


Repeated on the Oracle Power and Light (OPAL) model

Log in and bring up the viewer and create a switching plan.
Locate device BR4211 (or any gang_operated device)
On the Switch sheet, open up the Manual Step Addition form and populate it with the device.
Select 1 or 2 of the phases  (should not be allowed).
Select the Open operation and Save.
Now go and execute this step.  Since the device given is gang operated and in this case is 3-phase, It should not be operating anything other than all 3 phases.
