To Rename a File
1. Click File > Manage File > Rename. The Rename dialog box opens and the current model name appears in the Model box.
2. In the New name box, type the new file name.
3. Click either Rename in session or Rename on disk and in session.
* Problems result if you rename a file on disk and then retrieve a model (not in session) that depends on the previous file name. For example, a part cannot be found for an assembly.
4. Click OK.
If you retrieve an object from a non-working directory, rename and save the object, it saves to the original directory from which it was retrieved and not in the current working directory.
You cannot save or rename a file using the original file name, even if you save the file in a different directory.
