How to disable NS at component annotations in Plant ISO?

A - answer When you generate ISO, component annotations display the size with a "NS" suffix.

See the picture:

"NS" is an abbreviation of Nominal Size and you can disable this suffix using the isoconfig.xml file, as follows:

  1. open IsoConfig.xml in a XML editor or Notepad and locate the schema:

    < PropertyChangeScheme Name="Size" AnnotationStyle="Standard" Format="{0} NS" Grouping="true" Alignment="FlatHorizontal" LeaderStyle="AsNeeded" Filter="NotBoltWeldFlangeGasket" Field="Size" Placement="Along" />

  2. modify Format="{0} NS" to Format="{0} "

The resulting schema is:

< PropertyChangeScheme Name="Size" AnnotationStyle="Standard" Format="{0}" Grouping="true" Alignment="FlatHorizontal" LeaderStyle="AsNeeded" Filter="NotBoltWeldFlangeGasket" Field="Size" Placement="Along" />
