Is it possible to change the "Interfering Component" column in the Clearance Browser to show Component Name instead of part name?

In the example, we are doing a Clearance Analysis on a mounted circuit board and a cover. It would be much more beneficial if the generated report gave the Reference Designators (Component Name) instead of the part names as each part might be used many times.

"You can change how the components names/numbers are displayed in the Clearance Browser by selecting "Preferences -> Assemblies -> Descriptive Part Name Style".  Change it from File Name to Description or Specified Attribute and enter "DB_PART_NAME", or your attribute of choice.

Repeat the Perform Analysis command to update the Clearance Browser.
