      I have inherited a drawing of a part that I must rename.
      The drawing is abc.drw and calls up def.prt. I want to create a new part ghi.prt (virtually identical to the original)with drawing ghi.drw from this.

      Several forums have said things along the lines of
      - Open abc.drw and def.prt simultaneously
      - In the part file choose File > Rename, set the New name to ghi and choose "Rename on disk and in session"
      - Open the Drawing file and do the same.

      BUT THIS ONLY WORKS IF THE DRAWING AND PART FILE NAMES ARE THE SAME.

      When I do this the ghi.drw drawing file is created but the part file is still def.prt on the disk. The drawing file now calls ghi<def>.PRT in the model tree.


      How do I rename the part file and the dissimilar drawing file and keep the relationship so that ghi.drw calls ghi.prt?

      Thanks for any comments - please spell out what you mean in any reply because I am a Pro-E nube. I am running Pro-E Wildfire 5.

      Hi Mulgrave,

      I currently do not have a running version of Pro-E W5 but I believe the following steps will work to solve your problem as it works in Creo and I remember doing it a long time ago in Pro-E W5.

      From the drawing create a backup file from the file menu in a separate folder as the original documents. Then use the rename function to rename first the drawing then the part. Both files should be open when renaming and select the rename in disk and session option when prompted.

      The above is valid with a slight modification in the process.
      * Rename the drawing to def.drw
      *Create a NEW part (say pqr.prt)using def.prt as a template and "check" copy associated drawing.
      This would create a part named pqr.prt and a drawing named pqr.drw.
