I keep loosing line number information. It dissapears from my line number list and the pipe in the model also loses it's line number and becomes Unassigned. I do not use the P&ID application, only Plant 3d and it's line list under Home - Part Insertion
This has happened multiple times for one particular line number.
So far I have not noticed any other line in my project but I have not checked all of them.
The tag format setup for my pipes is:
P3d Line Group.Number[A] - TargetObject.Service - TargetObject.Nominal Size
Is this a known problem?
Is there a solution?
I had the same problem, the only solution I found was to create a new project and link all the drawings to the new project.
I was using P&ID App, but as Peter Quinn reply on my post, the data isn't linked so, maybe this helps you too
Looks like the issue is still there after running the latest service pack.
I can route a new line number or change a line to a new line number and have it alter back to Unassigned when re-opening the drawing.
The layer stays there but all the components jump off to layer 0 again.
Hmmm, not sure what's going on.
Ive (we've) been getting the same thing happen from time to time.
Its a bit random.
I can restart Plant3d and even reboot pc several times but the tags still drop off, then come in the next day and the tags hold!
I think it may be the flakey database engine and windows routines being used by the standard install.
Were in the process of migrating to a full SQL database in the hopes it will stabalize it a bit.
I'm currently working on a reasonble sized project with over 200 plus lines\300 plus Iso's and from 3 to 6 people accessing the plant3d project at any one time.
You could be on to something there with DB access. I'm just local at the moment for setup and trial.
Could you report back when you've got some experience with the fill SQL DB?
It's been 3 years and today i experiencing the same problem! Not acceptable!
I have assigned line numbers in a model and some of them changes to "Unassigned". I can not set these pipes to the correct line number. It instantly jumps back to Unassigned. If i choose a random line number it works fine.
wish i could say im having the same problem...i can drive plant3d like the stig...but im stuck doing 2d cut and paste autocad work...have skills will travel
I had the same problem recently.
What happened actually that the line number tag propereties disappeared - became blank.
What I did was that I reassigned all properties than the tag number came back.
A few months back, we found some circumstances where this happens and issued a hotfix for 2013. It's fixed in 2014. I don't recall the exact set of steps that would trigger this to happen.
