Diffuser Air Flow Annotation

The air flow anotation should be able to be set prior to inserting the diffuser. Presently, you have to insert the diffuser, select it and right click and select MV Part properties.

Also the offset from edge of block distance should be for all flow arrows. It currently only affects one of the arrows?

Hi Ted -

 

There is a third tab in the MvPartAdd that comes up
only for Type = "Air Terminal" (RGDs).  It allows you to set the flow when
you insert the diffuser...

 

I hear you on the flow arrows!

Hi Peter
Let me have my penny in.
What about a flow check for ductwork? It would be good being able to quickly
check flow in a ductwork section.
Another feature I'm missing is a running balance for electric circuits.

Peter,
Thanks. I wasn't clear on my original post. When you insert the air terminal the 3rd tab should inlude not only the air flow but the annotation options as well. This would make it much easier than having to set the annotation arrows after the part is placed.
