This addin will allow users to Replace files (part and drawing) with an identical copy of the same part/idw in the same Assembly by retaining the original file

General Usage Instructions

The ReplaceCopy command appears in an additional panel in the Assemble Ribbon and is available in the Assembly environment.

• When you run the ReplaceCopy command in the Assemble panel, a dialog will appear.

• This dialog provides you with the button for selecting the part.

• After selecting the part/instance, it displays the old name of the file selected, and a field is available for entering the new name of a file.

• You also have an option to Copy the Drawing if a drawing with the same name exists.

• “Apply” will rename the file and if the option is marked, a copy of the drawing with the new name will be created.

• The new name will be applied in the browser and also a copy will be created in the assembly retaining the original in the project.

• "Cancel" will close the dialog.
