The appearance and behavior of the contents of this tab differ depending on whether properties are accessed on a single document or accessed on a single component, multiple components, or multiple documents. You can add your own custom revision properties to your drawings by bulkloading the Sample Custom Revision Properties for Bulkload.xls workbook into your database. This workbook is available on the PPM Smart Community site. The properties will then display in this table. See Sample Custom Revision Properties for Bulkload Workbook and Place a custom revision property on a border.
The contents of this tab also depend on whether the model is registered to SmartPlant Foundation.
If you access Properties on a single document and your model has not been registered to SmartPlant Foundation, the Revision tab displays previous entries made. A new row is available to make a new entry. You can edit each field using alphanumeric and special characters.
If you access Properties on a single component, multiple components, or multiple documents and your model has not been registered to SmartPlant Foundation, the Revision tab has a single blank row for a new or edited entry. All fields are editable. Their values are propagated to the writeable documents that are associated with the selected set.
If your model has been registered to SmartPlant Foundation, use the Revise command to create revision numbers. This command reserves a revision number by adding it to the document Revision properties. The revision number is added in the form of a blank row on the Revision tab of the Properties dialog.
After reserving the revision number, right-click the document and select Properties. Go to the Revision tab and edit the Revision fields. All fields except for Revision Mark and Revision Minor Number are editable. See Revising.
You can create more than one revision per instance of the Properties Dialog by selecting Apply after adding a record.
You can delete one or more revision records by highlighting the revision rows and pressing DELETE. You must select OK or Apply to make the deletion permanent. The rows selected for deletion must be adjacent and must include the last revision record.
