I would also like this feature to be added. We try to update and refine things but then when we want to bring in an old project, they use the old panel types and it can get confusing.

Sorry, but the only solution for now is to update the panel name when you open it again and use:

Modify > Advanced > Replace panel type

I’ll ask the editor to consider a solution to update it when open, maybe like with fittings?

Cheers, Alexandre

Is there a way to apply the panel types when they are updated? For example if a new type is added it will apply it to the drawing in hand. However it won’t make that new panel type available to any other existing models that we may have in our library or on previous jobs. I have built up quite a stash of template models, but when adding new panel types or changing their names (to something more suitable) I would need to go through each model and update them separately. I am often finding new and improved ways to draw something in Polyboard and it would be great if there was an easy way to update existing models?

Kind regards
