PAR is built in ASM, with F2 a Comment is added & revised. PAR-Name in Pathfinder isn’t correct.

An assembly is created in which a component is build-in:

Teil  AAA 1183.asm         //The assembly

Teil  AAA 1184.par           //The component

 

With the F2 key is a Comment added to this component:

Teil  AAA 1184.par1:Comment  //The commented component

 

The component is Revised with the Revision Manager:

Teil  AAA 1185.par1:Comment  //The revised & commented component

 

In the Revision Manager it seems that the component got a new revised file name:

Teil  AAA 1183.asm

Teil  AAA 1185.par

 

But in Solid Edge it seems that its "name in the PATHFINDER" isn't correct:

Teil  AAA 1183.asm

Teil  AAA 1184.par1:Comment

 

It seems that the name in the Pathfinder is changeable/Commentable and it is not the real File Name.

In the Pathfinder Commented Name remains as it is although it is revised several times.

It sounds like you modified the occurrence name. This is not meant for adding comments but rather for overriding the filename. When you replace the file, the overridden occurrence name remains. Just delete the entire field and it will be reset.

Just deleting the entire field doesn't resolve the problem.
As soon as I make the first modification of the occurance name, a process starts within the main ASM, and it can't be calcelled unless I create a new ASM.
The modified occurance name isn't modified within Solid Edge/Pathfinder, but in the background the file name is allready right.
I used the ability to modify the occurance names to get a best understanding and a quick overview of the assembly and during creating a Draft.
So no body needs to klick on a part to know where/what it is.

So when you use F2 to edit it in Pathfinder, you have no way to reset it. Right click on the part and select "Occurrence Properties". A form will open and on the left you will see a column named "Placement Name". Right click on it and select "Reset Default Name". It will now default back to it's correct file name. (used to be able to edit fields here, but not anymore apparently... clearing it here reset it)

If you want to include additional data for any part in Pathfinder and elsewhere, see the Document Name Formula located on the Helpers tab (ST6) in Options (may be on the Manage tab in previous versions). With that you can include the file properties of the file in the Name Formula including the Title, Keywords, Category, etc... This is automatic once set and if you fill out the properties on create of a file, you already have the data needed and it shows up virtually everywhere including the Window titles.

Thanks for your help!
So, I think that it will be necessery to get editing of occurance names disable/ not accessible for users in the Pathfinder.

Do you know perhaps why Siemens is enabling direct editing of the occurrence names?
It's a very interesting issue.
And Thanks for your very appreciate help.
