Rename Class Name in project manager

I am required to use a french version of autocad P&ID 2013 and need to rename the class name descriptions in the project manager.


I am able to do this manually for each item , but it is taking a long time.

Is there a file that I can edit to change these items instead of having to go to each class.

That I know of at the moment, there is no easy way for doing this besides individually. Similar if you want your equipment to come in a different color.

Unfortunately I cannot help with the renaming.


To change the color of all the equipment at once, you can try going to the projSymbolStyle drawing and changing the equipment layer color via the layer menu, this will affect anything on that particular layer in your project.
