Have you guys ever seen anything like this before?  It is only doing this in one particular drawing.  I've audited/compressed/purged/etc.

When did you get the message? Does this happen when you try to place a new control valve? Does it allow you to try to substitute a valve? Does this happen when you place a normal valve as well? 


Have you tried to remove the drawing from the project?


1) Close out of all drawings, Remove Drawing from P&ID Drawings

2) Audit Project

3) Close the P&ID

3) Locate drawing in Explorer

4) Rename the drawing file, other than the name it was saved as in the project

5) Open P&ID and Open project and Audit project again

6) Use Open to open the renamed drawing file, select drawing to copy clip (Ctrl + C)

7) Create a New Drawing in the P&ID Drawings and give it the original name

8) Paste (Ctrl + V) the drawing

9) You might get ? next to the tag, just right click to edit tag and ok to close and the ? should be removed

I copied the drawing and the block still acted the same way.  I removed the drawing from the project and started over and everything seems fine.  Thanks
