When elements are deleted, and new ones are created they are given a sequential ID.Do the deleted pipes count toward the license limit?
[Problem ID#: 70784]
The numbering of the pipes comes from the labeling under Tools > Options > Labeling.The label numbering does not represent how many elements are in the model, and contributing to the license limit.
To view the quantity of an element type in your model open the FlexTable for that element type and the sum will be displayed on the lower-left corner. This total does represent the amount of elements contributing to the license limit.
