The ATexts that are used in the line summary area along the bottom of the isometric drawing can either have their ATexts changed or made blank. If the AText is changed, then its associated symbol is drawn. If it is set to blank, then the symbol is not drawn.

In these ATexts, the inclusion of a $ character creates a forced line feed causing the text to be plotted over two lines.

These two ATexts have no default text but can be used for any user-specified general information on the drawing frame. A typical example is PULLED BEND RADIUS IS 3X NOMINAL PIPE BORE.

This is a general note to signify how spool numbers and material list part numbers are shown on the isometric.

If only the bottom line is required, the records in the pipeline input data file should be as shown below:

The following ATexts appear in the line summary area along the bottom of both the plotted and printed Material Lists.

-317

PIPE NS

Is used in conjunction with AText -318 to which the total centreline length per bore is automatically computed and listed. Also uses AText -330 or AText -331 to indicate units.

-318

CL LENGTH

Is used in conjunction with AText -317. Also uses AText -329 or AText -331 or AText -360 or AText -361 depending on units being used.

-360

FT

Used to indicate unit type feet in pipe centre-line length region.

-361

FT-INS

Used to indicate unit type feet-inches in pipe centre-line length region.

-386

Blank is the default. used to control output of insulation length.

-387

Blank is the default. used to control output of heat trace length.
