Renaming copied parts?
When I copy a part in a transform, the new and old parts get the same name.
I'd like to avoid this because a) it makes it futile to discuss parts by name ("which Part 152"?) and b) it makes it difficult to select just the right part for assembly when the only difference from the others is its location (something you can't glean from the Assembly Insert menu).
I can rename parts manually, but often I have more than just a few duplicates, and it would be nice to just have copied parts automatically get new names when I make them. Is there a way to configure Onshape for this?
