To change the selection list for AutoCAD P&ID to allow for stacked fractions the size selection list must be modified or a new list has to be created from within the project setup.

Project Setup -> P&ID DWG Settings -> P&ID Class Definitions -> Engineering Items -> Lines -> Pipe Line Segments

Select the 'Pipe Line Segments' and then click on the 'Size' row to select it. Then click the 'Edit'-button over on the right side. This will bring up the 'Selection List Property'-window.
