Select the Setting box in the Reference Data row you want to modify.
Specify the new storage path, resource file, or other information that you want the plant to use by default.
The symbol path that is written to the database when you create an item in Catalog Manager and the data path in SmartPlant P&ID Options Manager must be the same. If the paths are different, the software displays the symbol as an unintelligent graphic. The symbol path serves as a pointer in SmartPlant P&ID Options Manager and is written to the database after you place a symbol; whereas the data path is a general path to the reference data.
Data locations for the default pipe, ducting, and signal run symbol files must be entered as a relative path based on the path defined for the Catalog Explorer Root Path setting. The data location for the default template file must be entered as a relative path based on the path defined for the P&ID template directory.
