||This task explains
how to propagate nominal size attributes using the Properties
dialog box. You can propagate a change in size value throughout a network
path with certain limitations.
||You can propagate
only nominal size attributes associated to a connector. You can propagate
either with Nominal Size, Nominal Size 2, Nominal Size 3 or Nominal Size
||To propagate a nominal size
attribute throughout a network path, right-click the object in your
document and select Properties from the drop-down menu. (You
can also right-click the object in the specifications tree).
example below, the object is a three-way valve.
The Properties dialog box displays.
||To change the nominal size of an
object and propagate the object properties, select a value from the
For this example, enter 3in in the Nominal Size 2
||Click the Propagate
The Attribute to Propagate dialog box displays,
showing the attributes that can be propagated.
Select Nominal Size 2.
Click OK to return to the Properties dialog box.
The network path for the Nominal Size 2 is highlighted.
||Click Apply or OK
in the Properties dialog box.
The network path for
Nominal Size 2 is propagated with the changed nominal size
attributes. Additionally, any objects in the network with a nominal size
attribute are changed to the Nominal Size 2 attributes
(in this case, 3 inches).
||You can include nozzles when you
propagate. Select Nozzles under Include Objects in
the Attribute to Propagate dialog box.
Click OK. The nominal size attributes propagate through the
network path, and include the nozzle.
You cannot propagate:
- Objects of a different discipline than the propagating object.
- Objects with no nominal size, or equivalent size attribute.
- Off-sheet connectors.
- Branch to Main Route.
- Main Route to Branch.
- An object in a different logical line (Line ID).
