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.
im using "advance renamer" its free
it allow to rename files by masks
regurding the WDP file, it is easyer to create a new one and add the renamed files
i use bulkrename utilty another free app which has multiple formats and wildcards
then i copy a blank standard project
and use Pat murrens app which you can find here
to update all the data
