B)  Batch Morph elements to TCV (or GPV or PBV)

1) Select the elements per the above step
2) Tools > Batch Morph
3) If you are only morphing a subset of nodes, choose the "Selection" radio button.
4) Select the desired type of element and click OK.

C)  Convert TCV, GPV or PBV to Isolation Valve

1) Open up Skelebrator (Tools > Skelebrator Skeletonizer)
2) Right click on Inline Isolating Valve Replacement and click on Add Inline Isolation Valve Replacement
3) Put a check mark on TCVs, GPVs, or PBVs (depending on the element type you used in step B above)
4) [Optional] You may add some condition under Conditions tab.
5) [Optional] Click on preview button.
6) Either click on Manual or Automatic button
