Override possibility to Pipe Segment From / To info??

Pipe segment supplies From / To - information that basically works OK. However, this information is not always correct process-design-wise, especially when there's reducers involved then the To field shows the next line after reducer to be destination, whereas we want it so thow eg. some tank to be the destination.


So we would want a simple possibility to manually override the automatical From / To information. We know we can write to those fields, but if the pipe segment is modified, eg. disconnected and connected again, the manually written value disappears and is replaced by automatical value that's wrong in some cases. Also, now it cannot be seen which info is written and which is automatical. Trustwothy of the information suffers.


Excellent would be basically similar procedure as with Acquired fields; the field is automatically updated but the user could "override" the value is necessary, and the overridden value stays if the user wants. Is this possible, either with PID2012 or 2013? Thank you!
