Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to change the classes of the components that make up a symbol all at one time in multiple symbols? Not just editing the symbol and changing the class one at a time. I ask this because when I import some .dwg files the walls, doors, windows, etc.. import as symbols and often they have multiple lines and polygons. I can use the custom selection tool or just select all symbols and change the overall symbols classes to "0" or "none" but the components of the symbol still retain there original class say "New_A-STRS_Pen_No__2." I would like to have everything as a single class so I may then import into a working template and not have 500+ new classes added to the file. Is this possible and I'm just missing the correct approach using the Modification tool?
Hi, I noticed a weird behavior: I had two drawing windows open side by side (which, thank you for adding this functionality!), one on each of two monitors. The resource browser was positioned over drawing b, but I had drawing A active in the list of drawings. I selected drawing C in the resource browser (which was tabbed with drawing A), and tried to import a symbol into drawing A with r-click->Import. The import dialogue window opened and showed that I was importing into Drawing A and I hit OK. The resource browser then showed drawing B as active, and the symbol didn't appear in my drawing A resources. Moving drawing B back into the tab stack with A and C solved the issue. Hopefully that makes sense, but basically it seems like the resource browser wants to activate the drawing that it's floated over no matter what you have selected (bolded) as active within it when importing symbols. Drag and drop showed the same problem. Thanks for any help you can provide!
When importing dwg files sometimes symbols duplicate and you get e.g. valve, valve-2, valve-3 etc. even though they are actually the same symbol "valve". It would be nice if instead of having to use the replace symbol for each instance there could be some functionality where you could use the resource browser to select the duplicates and "merge" multiple instances of the same symbol into a single symbol (e.g. "valve" in the example above) and it will automatically replace the duplicates with the "master symbol". It could even be used to replace an incorrect variant of a symbol with the correct one instead of just identical variants of a symbol.
