First off, are you using Desktop Content Center or are you using a Content Center run from an Autodesk Vault Server?


In both cases you need a read/write library, if you are using the desktop CC then you should already have one called 'My Library,' if you are using the Vault Server then you will either need to create a library or get your sysadmin to create one for you.


Once you have your desired read/write library then you need to open up the content center editor, ensuring you have the appropriate project file with all of the libraries loaded that you want to modifiy/use. Once are in the content center you need to find the appropriate library/style/parts that you want to change the descriptions for, copy them over to your read/write library and then change them. It works best to copy all parts that you are planning on using from the content center and modifying them as you see fit. You can make mass changes to the description for each type of bolt/nut/washer/misc, but you need to go into each one of the tables individually and edit the description column properties there.


Its a task, but once done everything is better.
