There are many reasons to rename multiple entities at a time, however, this will most often occur when you have measured a series of points using the default name. Once you have completed all of your measurements, it is common to modify the series to give it a more meaningful or descriptive name. These simple steps will enable you to rename a series of entities/measurements to all have the same name with a number appended (eg. MeasurementPt1, MeasurementPt2, MeasurementPt3, etc…).
Simply follow these three steps:
- Select all entities you wish to rename
- Right click on them and select “Rename”. You can also use the standard Windows shortcut key “F2” to rename an object.
- Type the new name for the entities. They will be numbered in the order in which they appear in the Object Manager.
