Rename the expressions

Creator
Creator

I have huge number of expressions to be renamed. For expample all the expressions are start with Blade1_a, Blade1_b,Blade1_c etc.

I want to rename all the expressions starts with Blade1 to Blade2. Exactly like what we do in MS office tools (Find & Replace). Is there any way?

Thadeus --

 

I'm not aware of a one-step method in NX 9 or NX 10.

 

In NX 11, you'll be able to just paste in a new set of names from Excel or your favorite text editor, and go:

In the meantime,  renaming of expressions is supported by Journaling, and if this is something you do frequently, then a little Journal might be optimal.

 

Does that help?

Thank you very much.

If I record a journal or one file I can't reuse isn't it?
