Displays options for editing a straight feature.

Properties

Displays the Pipe Straight Feature Properties dialog box. For more information, see Pipe Straight Feature Properties Dialog Box.

Move From

Click to specify the starting location of the move vector. If you do not define a starting point, the software assumes that the current location of the object is the starting point.

 Move To

Click to specify the ending location of the move vector.

Plane

Activates options for selecting a working plane for the route path. Six options are available:

  • Plan Plane - Defines the work surface as the XY plane at the depth of the active end. You also can press CTRL+1 to select this option.

  • Elevation Plane: East-West - Defines the work surface as the XZ plane. You also can press CTRL+2 to select this option.

  • Elevation Plane: North-South - Defines the work surface as the YZ plane. You also can press CTRL+3 to select this option.

  • Plane by Turn/Branch - Defines the work surface as the plane defined by an existing turn or branch. You select the turn or branch to set the plane. You also can press CTRL+4 to select this option.

  • Plane by Three Points - Defines the work surface using three points that you define. You also can press CTRL+5 to select this option.

  • No Plane - Clears any work surfaces. The software does not project points that you place to any plane. You also can press CTRL+6 to select this option.

Run

Displays the name of the pipe run with which the selected feature is associated. All other pipe runs associated with the same pipeline parent also appear in the list. Another pipe run can be selected if needed. Select <Select Graphically> to select an existing run in a graphic view, the Workspace Explorer, or the P&ID View. Select More to select a pipe run associated with a different pipeline.

Type

Displays the short code associated with the selected pipe. The Type list also contains the short codes associated with any other pipes defined in the piping specification for the current nominal diameter. Selecting an entry from the Type list replaces the selected pipe with one of a different type.

Option

Displays the option of the selected pipe. The Option list also contains any options defined in the piping specification for the short code selected in the Type box. For example, if two different wall thickness values are available in the piping specification for the short code selected in the Type box, both options appear in this list. Selecting another entry from the Option list updates the object accordingly.

 Lock Length

Defines whether the length of the selected pipe should remain constant while moving.

When locked , the software automatically modifies the turn points, along with the length and angle of adjacent straight features, to remain connected to the moved leg. The length of the moved leg does not change.

When not locked , the software extends or shortens the associated legs to connect with the new position of the moved pipe. The length of the moved leg can change. Any component, such as a valve, on the moved pipe maintains its relative position from the pipe ends.

Offset

Controls the SmartSketch offset constraint. Type the distance that you want to offset the pipe that you are editing. Select <Disabled> if you do not want to use the offset constraint. Select Set Offset Reference to define the reference point. For more information on setting the reference point, see Set Offset Reference Dialog Box.

Slope

Displays the slope of the selected straight feature. This option displays only for sloped pipe runs.
