    Question: How to control Pipe rise/drop annotation size to mininum value?

    Right Figure: Previous project (J10-12807) shows it can set to zero value with smaller diameter.
    Left Figure: Cureent project (J10-12810) shows it cannot be set to less than 1. Minimum value is 1 which shows bigger diameter than previous project.

    This was a good one introduced in the 2012 release. It is controlled by Project Units (found in the Manage Tab). Then under the Piping Discipline pull down, select pipe size. The rounding value of "to the nearest..." is the setting you need to adjust.

    Is there a way to not have this as a global parameter? As in if I want my pipe drop size to be different in different views?

    >> I want my pipe drop size to be different in different views
    This size is annotative, meaning it is dependent on the view's scale. So, it can already be different relative sizes in different views (but it will always plot the same size).
