I would like to see an option to reset the rev scheme to the same value as a brand new file, and to reset the revision history of that file on Copy Design.
Because of legacy data from Vault Basic with manually managed rev values, I have 2 different rev schemes and 2 properties to synchronise. 1 scheme for pre-manufacture (A, B, C, etc...) and 1 for released for manufacture (1, 2, 3, etc...). I have a situation where I have a released file at rev 2 that I copy design. As an example the IPT file changes to rev 1 but and the IDW file changes to A. I have a process that sometimes works to reset the rev and history. I change category of these 2 files to Base, then revise them to Null rev scheme, then change category to Engineering (default for Inventor files) which creates the rev value A. If I then work on that file and try to release it to the manufacture rev scheme (1, 2, 3, etc...) I can't get it to work properly. The IDW file will change to 1 but the IPT file changes to 2. And the previous rev history remains so when I place a rev block it contains all of the previous data.
I've come to the conclusion that it is often easier to just start with fresh files and re-model.
