ST8 REVISION MANAGER - ADDING REVISION NUMBER

Legend

I'm copying a psm and draft, and when changing number from 01 to 02, it is kind enough to make my revision 02 without even asking.

 

Why?

And you're not using Insight?

I see three places where there's an 02. Which one did you change and which changed automagically?

I copied my draft and psm, from -01 to -02, not using Insight, and SE was kind enough to go ahead and claim my new draft and psm are now revisions -02. The original 01's had no revision before being copied.

I'm going to assume it's because you named the files with the suffix -02, which fits Edge's default naming convention for revisions. I think you can use - or _ as revision delimiters.

The help isn't informative on the limits of what can constitute a delimiter. Surprise!

Is there a way to stop Solid Edge from automatically filling in that Revision column? When I use revision manager to copy a .psm and .dft it fills in the revision column automatically(in this case "G3393PA") based on the new file name and I have to delete it EVERY time which is annoying.  Never happened when i used ST6

Wow of course I figured it out 2 minutes after making a post on here

 

I set the "Revision Delimiter" value to a period "." instead of a dash "-"
