Meta data?

Hi everyone!

First post! I'm trying to import a CKD file from KeyCreator to SOLIDWORKS. On import in SOLIDWORKS, all the components get generic names except for some. The ones getting the correct names are SAT-files imported into KeyCreator. My guess is that some meta data is included on import of SAT files and that is what's beeing used by SOLIDWORKS. The reason for that is even if I change the names displayed in the levels pane they still get imported with the correct names. So the info is coming from somewhere else.

Any sugestions how to get this to work with the geometry created in KeyCreator? Where can I even see metadata in KeyCreator.

Thanks for beeing patient with a KeyCreator newbie!
