Understanding the Association between Titles and File Names

For parts, assemblies, and drawings, the 3DEXPERIENCE Connector for SOLIDWORKS lets you give a document a title that is different from the file name.

The title is a name that you can change whenever required. The file name is a unique identifier that remains unchanged.

For SOLIDWORKS 2020 SP4 or later, when you enable the 3DEXPERIENCE Connector for SOLIDWORKS add-in, documents display the title instead of the file name. If you have not assigned a title, documents display the file name.

The following dialog boxes list both the title and the file name:
  • Pack and Go
  • Reload
  • Find References

You can also reset the title to the file name.

To rename the title:

  1. In the FeatureManager Design Tree, right-click a SOLIDWORKS document and click Rename Title.
  2. In the Rename Title dialog box, enter the new title, or click Reset to change the title back to the file name, and click OK.
The title updates in MySession.
