Turning off PipeSupportSpec Break in AutoCAD Isometrics

This post will discuss how to modify your isoconfig.xml to remove pipesupportspec breaks.  If you are new to editing the xml, check out this post on using an xml editor.

Sometimes when using supports, you may get a spec break on your iso like this:

The solution is to change what items call for a spec break. To do that we will edit the filter. Looking through the isoconfig.xml, I went to Themes > Theme – Default > Annotations > AnnotationSchemes > PropertyBreakerScheme – SpecBreaker.  The spec breaker scheme uses the SpecBreakItems filter.

So, at the end of the xml, is the filters section. Find the SpecBreakItems filter add this part to the filter if it is not present: AND NOT (TYPE = ‘SUPPORT’)

At the end, the filter should look like this:

At the end you should see your iso clear up.
