Save As Flat

Why in ST9 does the filename not auto-populate and it comes up -00.dxf?  This seems like a huge step backwards?  In ealrier versions it would come up with the filename automatically.

My guess is that the "file naming" rules are set (new in ST9 with the BiDM).  Try setting to "none" as shown as it works for me and mine is set to none.

Everything is grayed out.  How do I get this active so I can select "none"?

Is this only happening when you save as a flat?  I had a similar issue when I attempted any "save as",  My options were grayed out and nobody could find a reason why. This happened to be while I was SEU this year, and I spoke to quite a few people.  This was only on my laptop though, desktop was ok and both had MP installed sametime, or maybe it was the ST9 update. Either way I had to reinstall for the grayed out issue to be resolved. Hopefully it's somehting simpler for you?

Regular saveas is not a problem.  It actually fills in all of the fields.  (BTW - just I'm clear, I am on mp4.)

Also seeing the same is with "save selected model".

@MikeSaari You may need to use the SEAdmin tool to set this for the Options.xml file you are using.

Do you know which line it would be in the options.xml file?  I see that Linear Revisions is set to NO for override and FALSE for value.  Or might it be one of the options below?

Thanks for the tip on using SEAdmin.  I got it!  I had to edit the File Naming Rule Overide = Yes and Value = None.
