There is any way to change the name of a part and automatically update it in all the assemblys?
I use to use standard parts that I have in a specific location in many assemblyes, If I have to change the name of that part, I use to do it with the Desings Administrator. Then I have to upload the links in every assembly. there's any way to do it authomatically?
Thank you all!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
It would be easier to use the where used function in DM if indeed where used will find all the links. I've been using managed SE (TC or Insight) for so long I don't remember.
Yes a "Where Used" from DesignManagaer will find all linked documents and a rename will be solved for them automatically.
Together with the "new" BiDM" the "Where USed" is a lot faster than with the old file access form Revision Manager
But it needs to have the data on an index disc
but on the other hand, if YOu have - and this is the same here for me - Your old structure without any PDM or whatever - You can use the BiDM, create the directory indices and the stuff will be found a lot faster.
This - for me personally - is one of the highlight of ST9/ST10.
I must say, the only what I'm struggeling a little at the moment, is the automatically use of document number and revision as file name.
On the other hand, You will prevent doubled numbers, and You will change to use properties rather than filenames, what finally will make evrything a lot easier.
You only have to be patient for a couple of weeks, as long as You get familiyr with this behaviour and procedere
Will see what I will say at Christmas time?
Give me a reminder then!
then I would like to say it is as it was with RM
The Where used will do the job but it will take a certain time to find all linked instances
OK. So for the WU links in Insight there's a database, and I assume in TC as well. With BiDM there's an index. How does WU track the links in plain old SE and Windows?
