P&ID 2008 Tagging

148 Views, 1 Replies

Is there any way to tag an item so that if it changes in one drawing it will automatically change in the rest of the drawings? I mean, if I label a pump that is in many different drawings and then I change something about that pump, will it change in all the drawings that pump is in? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks :smileyhappy:

If the pumps are linked to the same row in the data manager then yes,
changing a column property for one affects all of them. To link them
together they need to share the same tag. A dialog box will be displayed
where you can decide whether to link the entities to the same row or not.
