In marine mode or material handling mode, Update performs two functions:

  • For existing drawings, this command updates a single document or multiple drawing documents.

  • When drawings have not been created, this command generates and updates the drawings for the selected component. This option is only available for drawings-by-rule components.

    Marine mode or material handling mode only: If you did not previously select the model contents for a drawings-by-rule component, the Filter Properties for Asking Filter dialog box displays, and you must select a filter. The dialog is the same as the Filter Properties dialog box, except that only the appropriate tabs for the asking filter are displayed. For more information, see Filter Properties Dialog Box.

For other plant mode drawings, this command updates a single document or multiple drawing documents.

Update is available when you right-click on:

  • A folder or component in the Management Console. All drawings in all components within the folder are updated.

  • A component in the Management Console. All drawings in the component are updated.

  • One or more documents in the Detail View. The selected drawings are updated.

This command works on your local computer regardless of the batch configuration.

Update performs a smart update of a drawing. If a set of criteria is met, then an incremental update is performed only for the geometry of added, modified, and deleted objects. If the criteria are not met, then a full update of all geometry is performed.

All the following criteria must be met for Update to trigger an incremental update:

  • Each view in the drawing has had at least one full update previously performed.

  • The only view properties that have changed are name and description. For more information, see View Tab (Drawing View Properties Dialog Box).

  • The numbers of added, modified, or deleted objects in each view are less than a set percentage of the total number of objects.

  • The software allows incremental updates for the view types in the drawing.

Any one of the following criteria cause Update to trigger a full update:

  • A drawing view is new and has never had a full update.

  • A drawing view is a section or detail view.

  • A drawing view has been cropped.

  • The view style, scale, orientation, or coordinate system of a drawing view have changed.

  • A primary plate object in a view has been split or has not been split.

  • The numbers of added, modified, or deleted objects in each view are greater than a set percentage of the total number of objects.

  • The software does not allow incremental updates for the view types in the drawing.

The Update command is not available until you create drawings in the Management Console using the Create Drawing(s) command. When a folder or component is selected, all views in the component(s) are updated, including unassigned views in the Unassigned Folder of the Drawing View Explorer.

  • If you have not previously selected a filter for the component, the Select Filter dialog box displays, and you must select a filter. For more information, see Select Filter Dialog Box.

  • An incremental update is usually faster than a full update, but still results in completely up-to-date geometry for the view.

  • Documents created automatically in a Drawings by Rule component are automatically deleted by updating the component if the document no longer contains views.

  • The Update command is only available for drawings by rule. For other drawing types, the Update Now command is used. For more information, see Update Now.
