AutoCAD P&ID’s Tips and Tricks



AutoCAD P&ID allows you to place the same tag more than once in the same drawing.


For example, if you have a long main line it can be useful to place a tag in several places, along the line, for clarity. if you want to place an equipment list on a drawing for a particular process you can do it by selecting the equipment filter in the Drawing Data Manager

Clicking in the Data Manager frame (to activate it), typing ctrl-a (to select all) and typing ctrl-c (to copy the content of the active Data Manager Window). Activate the drawing by clicking somewhere in the drawing window and type ctrl-z (to paste). you will be prompted to select the paste location.
