Drawing doesn't show drawing name on SE Tab

Solid Edge ST9 - Draft - [ aaaa.par in bbbb.dft ]

 

Why does the drawing tab name in SE show as that ^^^

It adds a random part name next to the drawing name, when the actual drawing name is bbbb.dft

it's confusing as the tab is quite small and when you have a few docs open at the same time you don't know which file the window is actually referring to.

I've closed the file now. but when i reopen it, it sorts it self out.

Glad to know the problem has gone.

May be that was only a temporary graphics glictch.

Hi @Tushar

The issue has come back and it has happened to an assembly now. I don't think is a graphics issue as its only the file name that's causing the confusion its not the model view. see the screen shot below: 

my assembly file is called Pack Assembly so why is it saying 'side plate.par in' before it?

Hi @MagRiz

 

 

 

I think this is easy to answer.

 

You have inplace activated the part Side Plate from the assembly Pack Assembly 1340.

 

On the other hand Your image shows the assembly environment what makes this all very strange

 

Maybe You can provide a video rather than the screenshot, this could help better.

Hi @MagRiz

That is because you are editing the part in context of the assembly.

 

For eg. selecting the Edit In Place command on the plate1.par in the head1.asm assembly

will display this in the title bar:

not sure what you mean by activated. its not activated in the sense that it is editable in the assembly. and also its not the only part that is activated in the assembly

Hi @MagRiz

 

 

again, we suppose that You have inplace activated it from the assembly.

And the best way to see what You are doing would be showing a video!
