Insert Into New Part command in a weldment. The automatic behavior of SW for saving the file.
Is there any SW or regional system option to change this "-" delimiter between file name and cut-list item name to "." for example?
I'm pretty sure this would be program specific and not something that can be easily changed. Then again, as you know, there are quite a few talented people around here that might just be able to weave some magic for you!
Thanks, I know also that it is 10 minutes problem for programmer to add this option to SW system settings. I use "-" for configurations and "." as delimiter of assy and subassy (part).
I don't know of a way to change this default file naming, but I wrote a utility that replaces all hypens with dots.
It's an Autohotkey (https://autohotkey.com/) script (Hyphen2Dot) and its compiled exe file (Hyphen2Dot.exe):
With the script (oe exe) running and the focus is in the file name box, press Ctrl+- (Ctrl+Hyphen).
The current file name text will be selected and copied to the clipboard, all hyphens are then replaced by dots and the modified text is pasted into the file name box.
You don't need to select the file name before pressing Ctrl+- and you can also have the file name selected when you press Ctrl+-.
You can edit the script file if you wish to change Ctrl+- to see other keypress.
Right-click the green "A" icon in the notification area and select Exit to end the utility.
WARNING: This utility is not linked to the file name dialog box shown in your post. It will operate on whatever is active when Ctrl+- is pressed.
It doesn't answer your issue, but hopefully it will make renaming easier if you can't change this setting.
I hope this helps.
Thank you very much, Kevin
I`ve written the script AutoHotKey Script for everybody who works in SolidWorks, Adobe Illustrator and Indesign
but forgot about AutoHotKey opportunity for this particular case.
Thank you very much, it works like a charm!
but not for the case when cut-list body name contains "-" (I use it for mirrored one).
In this case, I have to use a manual correction.

I'm glad it worked for you as I only had MS Notepad to test it on.
And thank you for your kind reply, too.
