Rename/Change the File Name In SOLIDWORKS using Pack and GO for Revision Change
In this blog we are going to see how we can use a hide function in “Pack and Go” option for replacing the text in the file name.
Pack and go option is one of the popular options that we all use to know; it will help us to get all the reference files of any assembly or drawing so you can share can it with others or to create a complete backup.
To open Pack and Go dialog box Select File --> Pack and GO
Prefix and suffix option in the pack and go dialogue box will use to add the text in front or back of your file name correspondingly
For example, you have added R1 in your suffix and saved a file for a revision change
Now you need to make a revision R2 in the renamed file
In this scenario, you can use the option select/replace
Click the button and you will see the dialogue box as below
Now you can just enter R1 in find and R2 in replace and then close select/replace dialogue box
So all your file name has been renamed from R1 to R2.
You also have two check boxes as case sensitive and exact match.
Case sensitive check box will help to ignore case sensitivity in the characters
And Exact match check box will help you to relax the space between the word
For example, if you have a file name “universal jointR1” you find in R1 will not help to find this R1 since this jointR1 is a single word, in this case, you can uncheck the exact match check box so it will recognize R1 and it can be replaced with R2
