Labeling Pipes in 1-line view

I've noticed that when a label is placed on a pipe object, and the display
configuration is set to 1-line, that the pipe line does not trim itself
around the label. This is different than in schematic lines where the pipe
line is trimmed around the label. Is anybody aware of a way to get the line
to trim? If there is no way, the Autodesk...at that to the list of fixes
that need to be done to the program.

Yes, labels will mask the single line display of a pipe. Please make sure
that you have the "Mask Display of Curve" turned on in the label style.

I have that set already and I still see the line. It is strange though,
because I cannot select the line behind the text, yet it is still displayed.
I can see that the line appears to be trimmed when I select the pipe,
because the dotted line representing the selected pipe stops being dotted
around where the line would be trimmed, but there still is that line there.
Is there a "Display Masked Lines" setting that I need to change? For your
info, I'm looking at the "ABS Floor - 1 Line" configuration right now.

Hi Kyle -

It sounds like you have more than one display of the piping drawing itself
right now. Check display manager and make sure for the current config, that
there is only 1 display rep on for piping. If that doesn't work, could you
post or email the drawing? I'll take a look.
