This Technical Bulletin outlines how to create a new custom Style that contains a default Font, Font Character Size, etc to be used with all text inside P&ID.
1.Open AutoPLANT P&ID and type STYLE at the command name. This will load the STYLE window.2.Create a new style with a default Font Name, Size, Height, etc. This will be the new Style that P&ID will call in code later on. In this example we named our style "customstylename".3.Save and Exit AutoPLANT P&ID.4.Open the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Bentley\Plant V8i\P&ID\Pid-sup.lsp file.5.Search for the following section:
;; All text will use the text style "standard" unless the following variable;; is set to another DEFINED style.;(setq txtstyle "Standard")
(setq txtstyle "customstylename")
6.Notice in this section we created a new style named "customstylename" that is not remarked out.. When P&ID loads this is the default style that is loaded with the new default font, size, etc.
