RESOURCE NAME CONFLICT: Suddenly Can't Import Cabinet Symbols...

Recommended Posts

I've been creating 3D symbols for my cabinet library for years - consequently I have sheets and sheets of pre-classed 3D symbols with simplified 2D icons.

Suddenly every time I try to place one into a drawing I get an error message in a window titled "Resource Name Conflict"

For example, if I try to import or copy and paste a 4BD-18 cabinet, I get the following message:

The Symbol Definition named "4BD-18" that you are trying to import has the same name as a Group in the current document. What do you want to do?

( ) Rename the imported Symbol Definition as:


( ) Do no import this Symbol Definition.

I have no idea what I've done to get here - anyone?

That makes sense, but where would I name/rename a group - I would prefer not to have a bunch of similar classes, I would rather just root out the conflict which seems to be occurring over more than one document suddenly.

In the meantime, I just started a fresh drawing but I would like to know how to resolve/avoid this moving forward.
