The second option, Edit number will prompt a box where you can enter the new number for a device or string:

Add string allows the user to add strings to a connected box, as can be seen below:

PVcase will count the number of strings selected and ask for an alignment line. In case you are not satisfied with the connection just select the strings and use the Delete option to erase them.

In situations where only a few sub-elements of an electrical hierarchy are hidden, there will be a half-lit light bulb to indicate that.
