The user – always at the forefront

M4 P&ID FX has become more personal. With the new version, many tools have been optimized for user-friendliness and made customisable for users. The new version helps users save a lot of time on their daily tasks. In addition to favourites and simplified copying tools, users can now also customize attributes for their own user profile so that their preferred default values are used for a symbol. Favourites display their own default values, making it even easier for users to specify the required attributes. In this way, every user receives a personalised design experience.

Rapid reuse of existing designs

Version 7.0 of the M4 P&ID FX software offers new functionality enabling P&IDs to be created and used even quicker. For example, parts of an existing P&ID can be easily copied for reuse in a new P&ID. Copied symbols are automatically checked for consistency when they are inserted in the new P&ID and their individual symbol tags are adjusted accordingly. This makes it very quick and easy to reuse parts of existing designs.

Create a symbol legend with just one click

With version 7.0, a symbol legend can be quickly added to a P&ID. The symbol legend is automatically generated based on the symbols used in the P&ID. This saves a considerable amount of drafting time for every P&ID created. Accurate symbol legends are now only a click away.
