Edit Project List

Top  Previous  Next

Each project has its own set of pipe labels.  These are imported from the standards list at the beginning of a project, but they can be modified as the design moves forward.  Each piping system can be modified individually to display the desired information on the labels.  The default setting is to display only the size of the pipe. 

To edit the pipe labels project list, select:

The Pipe Labels dialog box will appear.

Layer System:  this column displays each pipe type and each layer system.  It cannot be edited.  Follow these links to edit pipe types or layer systems.

Label Format:  this column allows you to edit the information that is displayed with each pipe label.  The choices of information to display include; the pipe size, the flow through the pipe, the length of the section of pipe, the total length of the pipe run, and the maximum height of this pipe. 

The default label will display only the pipe size as shown below.

You may need to run the Update Drawing Graphics command to get existing pipe labels to display the new information, but all new labels will be inserted showing the correct information.

The pipe label will now include the additional information.
