Quickly Find Undefined Objects in a Large Model

Posted in AFT Fathom, AFT Arrow, AFT Titan, AFT Impulse, AFT Mercury

AFT software identifies which pipes and junctions lack complete input information by displaying the tag of undefined objects in red (this function may be toggled on and off by clicking the 'Object Status' button on the toolbar - the one on the far right that looks like a floodlamp). At normal zoom factors this makes it apparent which objects are undefined. When you zoom out to view a large system, however, it can be difficult to see which object tags are red. This is where the Find window's 'Show Undefined' function comes in handy.

Open the Find window either from the View menu of by pressing CTL+F. Under 'Search', check the 'Show Undefined' option. Now, the Pipes and Junctions list will be filtered to show only those objects lacking complete input definition. Select the desired object by clicking on it in the list so it's highlighted, then click the 'Find' button. The Workspace will pan to bring the object into view and select it. To open the object's Specification window, simply press Enter.
