Naviate HVAC & Plumbing

Update Project - management (2020.1.8 and 2021.1.3)

Better management and reporting of elements in groups and locked elements.

The only updater in HVAC & Plumbing is for Advanced Text. Now you will be provided with information about how many elements that are updated and how many that are excluded. The main reason for excluding elements is that the Text elements are locked by another user.

Selected Standard are saved in the project. Some Standards support multiple languages. You can use any of those languages to search for codes to use. Selected language is used for storing data such as Class Names.

You can change standard in a project. Parameters from previous standard are kept and new parameters are created as you classify elements.
