SketchUp Component Names in Navisworks

Dear Sir/Madam


I am currently in the process of creating a 4D model in Navisworks manage using objects created in component form in SketchUp and imorpting the SketchUp file into NW. When I create individual names for each of the components in sketchup these individual names can be seen in the 'Find item's' drop down menu in Navisworks. However when I hover the cursor over the component in the Naviswork file the 'definition name' of the SketchUp component is displayed and not the individual name assigned to this object. Due to this a range of separate objects will appear in the NW model to have the same name, despite the items menu suggesting otherwise. I would like the individual name to be displayed in this situation as well as in the 'find items' drop down menu. How can this be done?


Thanks in advance.
