This tool allows you to replace one or more elements with another from an external file or present in the same scene.
In the dialog box displayed you can set how to replace elements:
Elements that have the same PartNumber:
Elements that have the same UserNumber:
The inserted element will be automatically linked to the original, if you don’t want it, you can unlink it after replacement.
If you want to use the tool to replace elements with an element present in the active scene, release the tool with the right mouse button, the dialog box is similar to the previous one but allows you to choose the element to be used for the replacement directly in the active file.
If you want, you can keep the element linked to the replaced elements (works only in the same file, does not link a part in an external file).
