Pangolin tools
Batch rename families, family types, views, sheets, and more. Modify prefix, suffix, or use more elaborate renaming rules.

General Usage Instructions

  • First, start the add-in and find the items you want to rename in the list that is shown on screen. You can use category filters or filter by name. Also, you are able to sort the list by clicking on the column headers.
  • Then, define the renaming rules that will be applied to all the items that you checked in the list. You can preview the new names on the list, they are shown in blue. Preview names that appear in gray mean that they are not affected by current renaming rules.
  • Click on the "Rename" button and let the app do the work. If you process a lot of items at once, it is advised to save your document first.

 

Tip: You can directly preselect elements (except Families) in the project browser before running the app to save some time.
