- (Instructor) When you work with client specific…or project specific specs,…you often have to change some of the terminology…to conform with the client standards.…This may mean a change in the long description…versus the one that comes with the standard catalog.…Or perhaps you have to add more information…that's populated into the catalog.…We never wanted to make these changes in our master catalog,…so instead we'll make them in this spec.…I'll show you what I mean.…So from your desktop,…we're going to come to exercise files,…and we want to our property overrides folder…and look for a linked in spec.…
So I'm going to come down to our piping,…and I'm going to open that up.…Now take a look at what you see.…We already filtered this out for the sizes,…but we manually added the CS material in here.…And it only applies to just those components…that we actually manually added it to.…So now let's delete this.…So I'm going to highlight that,…I'm going to remove it from the spec.…Now I'm going to add it back in,…but this time I'm going to apply some overrides to that.…
