I am working with PDS embedded in AutoCAD 2012.
When i export i get all my layer names begining with reference from L000 - L510 etc etc example below:
L008 hyd_ANN_TPTEXT etc etc etc
I want to rename them as follows:
hyd_ANN_TPTEXT etc etc etc
I would like to do this multiple layers without having to do each one in turn.
Any thoughts would be appriciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by hmsilva. See the answer in context.
with the command "rename" you have to provide the part of the name you want to remove from the layer name, plus the first letter you want
to stay in the name, followed by asterisk.
For the new name, you must write the first letter that you want to stay in the layer name followed by asterisk,
this way works correctly.
using your last post, if layers names are
you should type in the old name:
and in the new name
Hope that helps
Thanks for the reply,
That did no quite do it. It only renamed layers L001-L009 and changed them to this:
etc etc I need all references to L001- L510 removed and all layers to start with hyd.
Hmm still not doing what i want. I have a long list of layers up to L510 some furher examples shown.
I need all of these removed L### and leave the layer starting with hyd_........................
Sorry, I didn't pay attention to the first part of your post :
Did you try selecting one of the layers in the rename dialoge, then backspacing and adding a wildcard?
Not being too good with the wildcard character searching things, I have tried all I know and I am leaning on the mercy of the community, this is driving me made!!
I've tried PDS output but it can't be done through that software so I need a ACAD solution.
My last response may have been a bit unclear:
In the rename dialoge select one of the layers so it is in the 'old name' box ,right click and copy it to the the rename box then backspace to where you want the change, add the wildcard (*).
