I have renamed one of the layer from "Engraving" to "UBENDLINE" as our laser is looking for.


Now I have to update all old drawing for new layer. When I tried to update old drawing for styles, it is not updating style i.e. showing old layer "Engraving". I also tried drawing update with drawing transfer wizard and adrawingresources add-in but no use.


Same I tried with new drawing, it is showing correct layer as expected.


Please suggest me solution for updating old drawings.

Dumb question, but are these files in an older version of Inventor? If so, try migrating them first to the new current version and they try the drawing transfer wizard.
