Mvpart selection default folder settings?

Everytime I try and add a new Mvpart to my drawing the selection defaults to an air curtain. I then have to traverse back through all the folders to get down to a VAV folder. I add a VAV box to my drawing. I select the add Mvpart again, the selection is back again to the air curtain selection. I again have to traverse back through all the menus back down to the VAV boxes. Doing this time and time again gets to be a PAIN! Is there a way to stop the Mvpart catalog from defaulting to air curtains and revert back to the last part added folder??

Hi Jody,

 

The MvPart Add dialog should by default open up on
the last part used exepti in one case; If you choose 'Add Mechanical Equipment'
from the tool palette.

 

You can change tis behaviuer if you want by
changing the command on that tool.

 

1. Right click on the icon and choose
Properties...

2. Click on the command text

3. Change the command to ^C^C(command "_MvPartAdd"
"t" "All")

 

Hope this helps

Or you can just copy (or use) the add equipment tool from the MEP palette

Add Mechanical equipment puts you back at the top of the mechanical list.
Add Terminal puts you back at the top of the terminal list
Add Fan puts you back at the top of the fan list

Add equipment puts you back where you were.
