Just wondering

For what purpose? I suspect that this would save you the time of having to close the operation dialog and then right-click renaming it afterward, but is there some other reason you would need this? Giving as much information as possible will help your cause in a possible enhancement.

hi,

 

I understand your question is renaming of operation while being verifying of tool path or generating of tool path.I just say I don't know but is there an idea.

 

If you want to rename of operation that while it is being verifing of tool path, do not do that. First of all let you batch processing and than rename all of operations after that just watch your simulation.

Note: I have not tried this.

Ther is a nice utility included in the ug open example folder to rename multiple operations that are selected on the Operation Navigator.  I use this once I have a set of operatons completed just the make it easier to understand later.

Take a look look at

Hello John,

I see and found the script you talk about and where it is.

I have something like this in Catia I use that renames all operations in a program I preselect / highlight.

 

Does this script do that? If so while in Operation Manager, how do I invoke the script to have it start renaming all my operations. I have looked and cannot find how.

Do I need to create a button/icon and link it to it? Maybe I do not have the right lic.

Thanks.
