Is it possible to indicate the start point for a pipeline so that spool numbers follow the correct direction similar to the Isogenstartpoint command in CadWorx.


Our spool numbers follow flow direction.

I am afraid this isn't possible at the moment. However I can log this as a enhancement request with our development team and keep you posted.


I will also check whether there are anyother alternatives for this issue.

how about just keeping the ISO's in order as you go along a pipeline.


Currently, when dumping multipage ISO's, they 'jump' all over the place.


sheet 1 - from sheet 3 to equip.

sheet 2 - from sheet 3 to sheet 5

sheet 3 - from sheet 1 to sheet 2

sheet 4 - from sheet 5 to header

sheet 5 - from sheet 2 to sheet 4


flow arrows go from header to equip!

The start point is already on the request list.
