Re: Format File Name in Property Text

I have been wanting stuff like that since the start.


  • Place variables into the Document number slot like: Assembly file name + Part file name + Text string
  • The ability to place Document name formula into draft
  • The ability to have variable names a function of the assembly and part variables


In general, when I rename an assembly or part, I want that to affect everything, including variable names related to parts. Now if you ask am I talking about the file name or the Document number, My response is both or either.
