I'm trying to find out how to change the service of a line after the line has been routed. The tag format for new lines works fine, the service can be chosen from a selection list, but I can't change the service after the line is routed.
The service property is set to "Acquire mode: from P3d Line Group.Service" Do I have to change it to "Override Mode"? If so, how do I change the service listed in the Line Number Tag. Example: "109-FG-1CS1-4" should be changed to "109-FW-1CS1-4". I'd hate to delete the entire line just to change one aspect of the Line Number Tag.

Solved! Go to Solution.
While the drawing is open,
Open <Data Manager>
Bottom Left corner of that window
<Order by Object Type> -- Change this to <Order by Area>
open up your area, then click <Pipe Lines> - do not need to open it up, just click on it.
here you have all the line numbers and the Nominal spec nominal size and Service
you can change it there.
Thank you for the tip, but when I did as you instructed, the "Service" column was greyed out. I believe that the column is locked. I also tried exporting to excel, unlocking the cells, changing the service then importing back into Data Manager. It didn't help?
Any other suggestions?
No, it is not set to read only. The only ones that are read only are: Locked, LockedBy, and LockedTimestamp.
I've included two screen captures, one of the P3d Line Group properties and the other is the line number Tag Format.
Thank you all for your help,
Attached is a capture of the Data Manager, Order By Area, Line 109 selected and the Service column apparently locked.
Thank you once again.
That's great, I was able to select and change the service of the line. The service for each component has been updated to the corrected code.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
After changing the service in the Data Manager, you should then select the line/components that need to be changed or corrected. Then from the properties pallet choose "New" from the Line Number Tag selection list. The service property has been pulled from the Data Manager and you can assign the new corrected line number to the selected components.
Is that correct?
Thank you all,
