How to Use Meter Symbols

This set of symbols are included in Industrial Automation category of the symbol library. When you start a Process P&ID drawing template, the symbol library will open automatically. You can drag a required shape from the library and drop onto the canvas.

The shapes you've got are vector graphics, which are highly customizable.

Size Scalable

You are allowed to scale the shape to any size without loss of the display resolution. There is no blur image anymore.

Color Changeable

You are able to freely change filling colors to suit your own theme.

Tips: If you want to change the filling color for a part of a shape, first you need to select the sub shape. Click on the sub shape you want to change color for a few times until you successfully select it (there will be a blue selection frame), then you can change this sub shape with a new color, and with other parts unchanged. Or you can ungroup the shape first (go to Home menu, and click Ungroup button), and change the color for any sub shape freely.
