Size of Globe Valves

For some reason the size of automatic globe valves is smaller than the rest of automatic valves (ball etc..) and that manual globe valves.  Anyway to change the size of predefined valves?  See picture attached.

This can be changed by editing the block properties from within the project setup.

Thanks, that helped.  


I have about 40 P&IDs, and when I change the block, it automatically updates them all, but the lines are not connected to the new valve, see snapshot attached.


I have to go one by one and change the valve type, change it again to the one I want and at that point YES, the lines are properly connected.


Any way to avoid doing this to every single valve?
