I have a nearly completed project and I need to modify the specifications for a specific class of fittings. After editing the catalogue and specs how can I update the out dated refferenced specs?

 

Thank you,

Henry

an easy out would to be add the new spec under a different name, and use the new parts.  I have had to do this a couple times.  It does not work if you need to modify the old fittings in the drawing though.

Thanks, John.

 

I guess I'll be modifying the existing parts as required. I was hoping to escape that.
