I need to change a custom attribute name on several DC’s within a drawing. I was hoping that changing the name on one would reflect on all of its instances but it doesn’t. Is that intended behavior and, if so, is there a way to update all instances? I have about 20 different DC’s, each with about 15 instances that need updating.
The name on the Attribute Panel (Not Entity Info)?
You can double click on the Title/Name.
Then maybe do a Replace Selected by R clicking the newly named component from the Components Panel/Tray.
I don´t think it is intended, but still a limitation. DCs graft onto standard components, and when you set a parameter to change the geometry within, the component instance becomes unique. Only simple scaling keeps the instances children of the same definition.
