when I edit/change a long description using update components facility, the descriptions no longer match the components.
Would somebody please do a check to see if they can re-create as well.
Use out of the box AP project, in my case SAMPLE METRIC
create new drawing.
Piping > Setup > Component update preferences > component field selection > LONG_DESCR > Add > to "Fields To Include"
use out of the box spec, in my case Mcs150, 100mm.
make simple spool, 4 bends, joined by pipe, flanged either end.
now update components
Database Tools > Update Components > select objects (select all components) > Component Properties >
Properties To Update > LONG_DESCR
select pipe description (PIPE, SCH 40), change to new value (PIPE,SMLS A106B SCH 80)
OK to accept changes.
Now check changes, using Edit Component.
In my case the flanges and the elbows had the new piping description.

Thanks for posting your question,
Could you please update me AutoPLANT Modeler exact version?
As per your description what I understood, Update Component changes only Long Description for Flanges and Elbow not for Pipe? Please correct me if my understanding wrong.
Looking forward to your reply.
After running "Update components" it scrambles all component descriptions. 3d components now have the wrong descriptions.
Have you tried to re-create your end?
AP version is apm64081114124en.exe
Correction, the version I am using is 188.8.131.52
