How do I fix a bend type on the top of a vertical rising duct and the bottom on the same floor. If I fix using fix bend/Tee command It will only let me fix one. Do I have to try and simulate this in a different way to get the outcome.

If you go to Ducts > Defaults and change the pipe height to the height of the other bend, then you should be able to pick it then.

That does not work. I tried that and it still only selects one of the bends. Below is an example of It only fixing one of them. I can fix one of them to a square mitre multivane but the other is still the default is this case a medium rad bend.
Hi Dan, you could change your default bend type, prior to tracing the pipework, by going to Fittings > Default Bends/Tees. You can change it back afterwards if needs be.
I am drawing ductwork just to clarify (not sure if that makes a difference or not). The problem with that is it changes the rest of my default bends to the same which I suppose I could manually fix the rest to the previous default. In a larger system I don't always use the same bend type in all rises for example I can use a long radius bend at the top and a short at the bottom on one duct rise and a short radius and short radius for another. I was just wondering how I would simulate this best using Hevacomp. I was thinking maybe I could add another identical floor between the rise that way I could select both. However, I wondered if it were possible to do this on the same floor.
Sorry my mistake I meant to say one I would use a multi vane top Long radius bottom & the other riser would be short radius short radius.
