Release limitation of PIPE ID character length

Users of a company in Japan name PIPE ID under specific rule in P&ID and 3D-CAD while AutoPIPE has a limitation for PIPE ID's character length as 8 words. So they convert the PIPE ID for AutoPIPE limitation, but there is a possibility that it induces human error during modeling or consistency check between CAD model and analysis model. Also it needs converting rule which has likelihood to be barrier of development work in the future.

Please consider to release the limitation.

    Thanks for the comment. I will ask the user to use the TAG to manage their PIPE description.

    The Pipe ID is limited to 8 characters and changing would effect every report, grid, the database, help documentation etc. So for what might sound like a minor update it is a huge undertaking and cannot be currently justified. We provide TAG to be used to include more information about the pipe to help with this problem
