Conduit diameter and description fields not updating after making changes in flextable or alternative

After making a change to a catalog conduit in the flextable or physical alternative, the "Diameter" and Conduit Description fields are not updated to reflect that change. For example a global edit to the "Size" field.


This is currently working as expected. Special logic is in place when changing catalog conduit-related properties in the Property Grid (such as the "Size"), so that the diameter and description fields update at the same time. Because of the way that Flextables and the alternative editor works, this special behavior does not occur.

Note however that the Diameter (in the above example case) and Conduit Description fields are for reference purposes; the numerical solver will always used the selected catalog entry for calculations (900 mm in the example case)

To fix up these outdated display fields, run the Update Conduit Descriptions tool, located under the Tools Ribbon > Tools > Update Descriptions.
