P&ID Meter Symbols and Their Usage
Ready-made P&ID meter symbols aim to help users produce great-looking and professional piping and instrumentation diagrams. With every shape provided in vector format, it's more flexible to draw tailor-made diagrams. Check out the meter symbols on this page and see why everyone is using them to make P&IDs and PFDs.

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.
You are allowed to scale the shape to any size without loss of the display resolution. There is no blur image anymore.
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.
You are able to pull out the drawing components to create new symbols. To do this, first you need to click Ungroup button to ungroup the shape under Home menu.
To help you better understand piping and instrumentation diagram symbols, you can go to PID examples and PFD examples pages to learn from a wide range of examples.
