Command Interface Description
The Affix Name command dialog looks as follows
Objects to alter:
Select the objects whose name you wish to alter through the addition or removal of Prefix or Suffix information. For example you may want to suffix objects with name Ditch to Ditch-V1 for example if you revision track object level information. You may want to replace -V1 with -V2 for example. You can select one or more objects here.
You can enter a Prefix or Suffix value to add in this section of the dialog. Anything that you add here including spaces and hyphens etc. will be added as a prefix or suffix to the existing object names. Note you can only Prefix or Suffix an existing name, if the selected objects have no name, then no name update will be made.
You can enter a Prefix or Suffix value to remove in this section of the dialog. Anything that you enter here including spaces and hyphens etc. will be removed from the existing names of the selected objects where an exact match is found. Note you can remove a prefix or suffix value if it exists already. Removals are carried out before additions, so if you have an object name Ditch-V1 and you enter -V1 as a removal suffix and add -V2 as an add suffix your object name will become Ditch-V2 as a result of this transaction.
When you tap apply, the name changes will be made and the command will ready itself for another selection set and repeat process execution. If you do not want to make a second selection and repeat the process tap Close to finish the process.
