The options in this dialog box allow you to customize the loop number name template that appears in the New Loop Number dialog box. You can also choose to propagate the loop service description to the loop drawing reference.

Note that these preferences apply to the current unit only.

Define new loop name template — These options determine how Smart Instrumentation displays new loop number names in the New Loop Number dialog box in relation to the previously created tag number.

  • No default — The data field in the New Loop Number dialog box does not display any default loop, letting you type the number you need.

  • Same as the last created loop — The data field in the New Loop Number dialog box displays the last created loop.  You can accept the displayed number, modify it, or type the number you need.

  • Same as the last created loop + 1 — The data field in the New Loop Number dialog box displays the last created loop number incremented by one.  You can accept the displayed number, modify it, or type the number you need.

  • The last existing loop in the unit + 1 — The data field in the New Loop Number dialog box displays the last existing loop number in the current unit incremented by one.  You can accept the displayed number, modify it, or type the number you need.

  • The last existing loop in the domain + 1 — The data field in the New Loop Number dialog box displays the last existing loop number in the current domain incremented by one.  You can accept the displayed number, modify it, or type the number you need.

    The last three options are available for numeric loop names only.  If your loop names are not numeric, the data field in the New Loop Number dialog box will display the last created loop.

Apply loop service to drawing description — Specifies that in the Loop Drawings module, a loop service which you define for a loop appears in the Loop Drawing List dialog box under the Description column.  If you clear the check box, the Description column remains empty.
