The OpenPlant development team is pleased to announce the availability of OpenPlant PID CONNECT Edition Update 11 ( is an easy-to-use, data-driven application for the rapid production of intelligent piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs).

New and Changed in OpenPlant PID CONNECT Edition Update 11
The following items summarize the new features and enhancements in the OpenPlant PID CONNECT Edition Update 11 release

Virtual Instruments and Tag Replication
Virtual Instruments
When designing a PID there are situations in which you want to account for additional instruments in a bill of materials that you don't have room to show in the PID diagram itself. In such cases, you now have the ability to define virtual instruments that are associated with an existing instrument shown in the PID without having to place these instruments in the PID itself. Syncing the drawing will sync the tags of these virtual instruments to PlantSight so that they can be reported on.

Tag Replication
It's very common for certain processes to be repeated within a plant. Now you can save a lot of design time by drawing a process once and replicating it several times. You no longer need to draw it separately for each occurrence. The replication creates additional incremented tags for each item that was selected in order to ensure an accurate BOM is created when the drawing is synced to PlantSight.

New Components and Component Types
New Instrument Panel Component
We have introduced a new Panel Component that can be used to house instruments which will inherit the associated items and properties assigned to the Panel. If you drag an instrument inside a panel it will adopt the properties of the panel.
New Inline Class for Filters / Strainers
A new inline class was added that breaks the pipeline/piperun like a valve to support components like filters and strainers. These components were also added to the component gallery:

Support for Horizontal Oriented Reports
When placing In Drawing Reports you can now configure those reports to transpose the rows and columns to create horizontally oriented reports like this:

Enhanced Instrument Loop drafting workflows
The following enhancements were made to instrument loops:
- Instruments you add to an existing loop will now automatically adopt the loop number so that the tags are consistently indicating that the instruments belong to that loop.
- When selecting a Device Type Code for an instrument you can now select "FC Flow Control" as an option from the pick list.
Enhanced Piping Tools
Change pipe run to a new pipeline
This new tool gives you the ability to quickly change an existing pipe run's pipeline to a new pipeline that doesn't exist on the drawing by allowing you to create the new pipeline on the fly.
Change Pipe Run's Pipeline
We reversed the workflow of the existing Change Pipe Run's Pipeline tool so that it prompts you to first select the pipe run you want to change and then select the desired pipeline to assign it to so that it follows a more logical flow.
Place Pipe Run
The Place Pipe Run tool no longer requires a physical connection to an existing pipeline on the drawing. If you end the pipe run without connecting it physically to an existing pipeline it will prompt you with a dialog to browse to an existing pipeline in the drawing to associate with the pipe run so that you can create pipe runs for vents, drains and instrument connections on pumps and tanks more easily.
Flow Arrows
We changed the default location for flow arrows so that the tip of the arrow is placed at the vertex of any change in direction of the pipeline in our out of the box schemas since that has been the generally preferred location for most users.

Link pipelines between drawings without page connectors
You can now continue the same pipeline created on one drawing onto another drawing by using the Browse Pipeline feature in the Pipeline Tag Creation dialog to link the new pipeline you are creating to one that was placed on another drawing without the use of a page connector.
OpenPlant PID CONNECT Edition Update 11 (

Note: This will always result in the creation of a new pipe run on the second drawing. If you need to continue the same pipe run you must use a page connector.
New Display Toggle in Tag Browser dialog
A new three way toggle button was added to the Tag Browser to allow you to filter the list of instances based on these options:
- Show all instances
- Show only instances placed in documents
- Show Instances not placed in any document

Enhanced Drafting and Tagging Workflows
Right Click > Edit Components
A new Edit right click context menu item was added whenever you right click on an equipment, instrument, or pipeline that enables you to open the corresponding Edit dialog to make changes to the selected item's tag and properties.

Right Click Context Menu now displays P&ID icons
We now display icons for the right click context menu for P&ID commands as shown here:
OpenPlant PID CONNECT Edition Update 11 (
Nozzle Annotation
The default annotation for nozzles was changed to match the configuration documented in the following WIKI so that a calculated nozzle tag such as V-001-N1 will only show N1 after placement:

Page Connectors
You now have the ability to utilize and link different page connector symbols in cases where your annotation might have different text justification depending on whether it is an incoming or outgoing connector. When you right click on Page Connectors and select "To From Data" from the menu you now get a new dialog that graphically shows the connection information and allows you to view the property data of the To From connections and even navigate to the related document.
OpenPlant PID CONNECT Edition Update 11 (

Renamed Drawing Tool to Document Settings
We renamed the "Drawing" tool in the ribbon menu that displayed the P&ID Document dialog to "Document Settings" to better describe the functionality found in the dialog.
Simplified Project Reuse Workflows
Reusing Existing Document
We simplified and clarified the workflow and user experience when attempting to reuse existing drawings in new design projects to ensure that the most appropriate action is taken. Now if you copy or move a document into a WorkSet you will be prompted with this new File Conflict Resolution dialog when you open the file:
OpenPlant PID CONNECT Edition Update 11 (

The software will compare the path and filename stored within the document with the current WorkSet to offer the best recommendation for what action you should take which includes these possibilities:
- Add New Document and retain GUIDs
- Add New Document and create new GUIDs
- Rename Document
Each option is explained in the dialog itself and additional explanations are given as to how the software arrived at the decision it did. If you disagree with the chosen option you can enable all options using the toggle at the lower left of the dialog and change the selected option as you desire.
As part of this workflow you may also be presented with the PlantSight Project Storage Discrepancy dialog if the associated PlantSight Project differs from the one stored with the document. We simplified and clarified the options in this dialog as shown here:
OpenPlant PID CONNECT Edition Update 11 (

You can choose between the current WorkSet's configuration, continue to use the configuration stored with the document or work in offline mode disconnected from OpenPlant PID .
New Documents Inherit Plant Breakdown Structure from PlantSight
When your project is connected to PlantSight and you create a new document it will now change the default plant breakdown structure properties that are set to a default value of "none" to the first value found in PlantSight to ensure you have a valid default value
Ability to update/restore deleted annotation
If you remove any of the predefined component annotations and want to restore them you can now execute the key-in: pid annotation recreate to restore this default annotation without needing to delete and replace the component again.
PlantSight Integration and Synchronization Enhancements
The following enhancements were made to the way OpenPlant PID integrates with and synchronizes data with PlantSight :
- Synchronization to PlantSight will now update graphical changes such as moved components.
- Synchronization to PlantSight will now include elements unrelated to PID components such as text notes, lines, boxes, etc.
- New PlantSight Information ribbon button will display CONNECTED project information as shown here:
OpenPlant PID CONNECT Edition Update 11 (

New Keyins allow you to create pre-configured ribbon buttons which set the synchronization direction between OpenPlant PID and PlantSight as shown here:
DGN to PlantSight: pid model execute itwinsync push
PlantSight to DGN : pid model execute itwinsync pull
