Rules for Line Grouping

224 Views, 1 Replies

Got a P&ID newbie question. What determines if lines will group? For instance, sometimes when i change the service group and the line number, lines automatically join another group unintentionally. It seems however that having the same line number alone is enough to make this happen. The project I'm working on is too large for me to experiment (I wouldn't be able to keep up with the unintended consequences). Any input would be greatly appreciated.

When you start a line, after you pick the first point, the command line prompts to continue the sline group or to start a new one.  Use that to change the line grouping while drawing.  Generally, I believe if you start a line without clicking on another one, it creates a new sline group, while if you start a line on an existing one, it puts it in the same group.  There are tools for viewing and modifying the grouping in the ribbon.
