Data reference and Styles HELP

I wanted to know if there was a fix for this.  We have a project and data referenced out some information, but the problem is when you bring in the data its does not associate it with a style.  Is there anyway of doing a global change to the data references.

Thanks

What type of data is it?  Pipes and structures?

So first things first, get the styles you want into the drawing you are working in.

 

You can do that by opening the source and destination file, going to toolspace >> settings, change the "view" to "master view" (that will display all open files) and drag the style from the source to the destination.

 

Once the style is in the drawing you will want to apply it.  To do that, in the destination drawing go to toolspace >> prospector and expand your pipe networks.  Select the pipes or structures, whatever you wish to start with.  You will see what looks like an excel spreadsheet below, hold ctrl and select the structures/pipes that will have one style.  Right click "Style" at the top of the chart and select "edit", pick the style, and done.  Repeat as required.

Thank you.  That just saved us a good bit of time as we had a number of data references from numerous networks.
