How to replace existing 2D plant symbol with 2009 symbol

Recommended Posts

I would like to replace some of the plant symbols in my 2009 plant library in my plant defaults file with different symbols. This will not involve creating a new symbol, just replacing the symbol currently assigned to a plant with a different existing symbol.

How can I do this?

Do not replace them with symbols; replace the plant symbol geometry from your symbol geometry.

So ? grab a symbol you want the geometry from and right click to Edit Symbol ? select 2D Component and copy it out of the symbol

Same deal with your plant symbol ? right click it ? Edit 2D Graphics and delete the geometry in it then paste in the geometry from the original symbol

Make certain the pasted geometry is centred at x = 0 and y = 0

Exit the plant symbol ? I always put my plant symbols in none class

Then you can go back into the new Plant and arrange the Classes to suit for outline, fill etc as you wish
