Renaming of features in v5

Renaming of features in v5

Renaming of features in v5

Dear v5 users,

I am having one problem in renaming the features. If i create 10 sketches nad delete say 3rd sketch then is there any way i can rename the sketches automatically so that all sketches will be in ascending order and not any name.
Please help me on this

RE: Renaming of features in v5

Hi amitkulk,

There is no way that I know of that will automatially rename the sketches, but the sketch number allocated to the sketch by the program is only an identifier anyway.
You should rename the sketches to a name that means something to you.
ie. "Sketch 1" could be "Main Body Sketch"
    "Sketch 2" could be "Left Arm Sketch"
    "Sketch 3" could be "Right Arm Sketch"

That way you can find the right sketch associated with the feature in the feature tree very quickly.

It is a good habit to get into, renaming the sketches in the feature tree makes it easier to find.
The number of the sketch given to it by the program does not help you identify the feature it belongs to.

Hope this helps,

Hi amitkulk,

Whilst I agree with jakey's response (renaming sketches to something meaningful), you could try a small VB macro to rename all sketches (or other entity types) to be numerically ordered.

The V5 VBA language is quite powerful.

Good luck
