i have created a custom ball valve using the CREATE NEW COMPONENT in the catalog editor using PLANT 3D PARAMETRICS GRAPHICS. when i click on EDIT OPERATOR ASSIGNMENTS my valve does not show up in the list so that i can add a handlever to the valve?

You'll want to make sure you setup the new valve as a 'valve body'




Go ahead and save the new valve once you entered the required info. Next, click on the 'Edit Operator Assignments' button and select your new valve from the 'Valve Part Family' drop-down list:




From there you should be able to assign an operator for each size.
