Renaming drawings project-wide

246 Views, 2 Replies

Does anybody know if is there an easy way to rename the drawings project-wide? I am looking for an option similar to the one you get when you copy a project and you have the option to find/replace part of the old filenames. Right now I am using an external utility (Panda Batch File Renamer) to rename the drawings and manually change the file names in the wdp file (of course while the project is closed...).

The best way to rename all files in a project is to copy the project and use the built-in method you described.  Of course you can rename one file at a time by right-clicking over it in project manager and selecting rename.  Hint: You cannot rename the file if the drawing is open.

Thanks for the information. I knew that one, I was trying not to create another duplicated project...
