How to handle broken references when modifications to a part studio cause named parts to be renamed
Working in a part studio with 3 parts whose geometry is interdependent. All part are used as derived parts in other part studios and in assemblies of the same document. A named part that we'll call 12345 needs modifications that involve split and boolean operations. On boolean, OnShape creates a new part called 'Part 2', and 12345 is lost. No big deal, I can rename it, but then everywhere 12345 was used is a broken reference. Renaming 'Part 2' back to 12345 does not fix the references. How can I tell OnShape to keep the reference, or how can I quickly update it across several other part studios and assemblies?
