 Numeric fila names - self managing

Could someone enlighten me as to how VX deals with plain numeric file names?

I wanted to set up some files - 01, 02, 03 etc. Maybe I'll edit the names later. However VX started adding extra digits (0 actually) to the name. It seems that 4 numeric characters is OK but less is not. A leading 0 is Ok when an alpha exists.

There must be a protocol definition - so what is it?

Cheers,

Hi Paul

Erm, you do not actually mean files do you - 01.VX 02.VX etc can be done. I think you refer to the naming of Root Objects (Parts, Drawings). If these names are to be numbers, there must be a minimum four digits.

Hi Chris,
yeap, root objects. Now I know it's cool. Just cuaght me out a little.

Slight topic diversion ==v
One thing I find really tedious is having to type in the complete new name when renaming. Is there any compelling reason why the Windows rename norm cannot be applied, root objects, history objects etc. Most times I rename it is a small variation.
Cheers

Hi Paul

Yes, that is a complete pain, you are not the first to mention it. We are fixing this for a near-future release.
