Default Drawing name


Active member
I want to create drawing with the default name of the part or assembly whichever is the case.

To further elaborate my question; say I created a part with name "gear.prt", now I want to create drawing of this "gear.prt", what i do is while my part "gear.prt" is open, I click on create new icon and select drawing radio button, what i see the default name is "drw0001", I want this name to be "gear.drw" by default.

How can I do this?

I haven't seen any configuration option in documentation or elsewhere.

Any help in this regard would be appreciated.
