  • You can specify whether P&ID automatically adds flow arrows to your process lines. 
  • You can specify the size of the flow arrows that the software automatically adds to your process lines. 
  • You can add a vertex to a process line to make it one continuous line. 
  • You can reverse the direction of flow arrows, enable and disable flow arrows, and add or erase flow arrows on the line. 
  • Line tags move with the line when using the grip points. 
  • Enhanced the process lines in the following ways:
    • When you delete a line, the other lines mend at all breaks along those lines, and removes all flow arrows on the deleted line segment.
    • When you move a process line by grip point, the old location break mends, and a new break displays at the new location.
    • When you use the middle grip point on a process line, it moves the entire process line with the in-line components.
    • When you use the corner grip point on a process line, it moves the individual process line segments.
  • Enhanced valve insertion in the following ways:
    • When you move a valve by grip point from one line to another, the software mends the break at the insertion, and displays a new break at the new location.
    • When you erase a valve, the software mends the break at that location.
  • Enhanced reducer insertion in the following ways:
    • When you insert a reducer and assign the reduction size to the reduction side of the line, it prompts you to change the size of the components along that line. For more information, see Insert a reducer.
    • When you remove a reducer, the process line mends and the process line size changes to the non-reduction size for the entire line. For more information, see Delete a reducer.
