Batch rename Symbold Definitions

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.


I'm importing multiple DXFs. I've picked up on the job half way through, and so far they all reside in seperate VWX files.

I'm now copy/pasting each one into a single file, but it needs to "rename symbol definitions.

I can rename each one individually on import/paste, but I'd like an oprion to add a prefix or suffix to all the instances to save time.


I'm sure there's a scripting method, but rather than write parts of the program myself I think this would be useful straight out of the box. Any ideas?
