Thanks for sharing, looks awesome.
I tried it with Solidworks 2016, it's working fine, except the error message in the first execution.
Rename, Move function work well, indexing and opening Solidworks is really fast.
I suggest you add a preview of the selected Solidworks file!
I've just tested your program with SW 2016 SP3 on Win7 and it works well.
It indexed about 50GB archive with >15k files over the LAN in about 5 minutes (amazing!) and then it shows files relations really fast.
As soon as I can I'll test also move/rename functions.
Is it possible to save indexing results? It seems that when I change the folder to index and then go back to the previous one, the program has to index the folder again from the beginning.
Anyway, nice job.
Is it possible in it to batch rename SW files? I mean hundrets of files in same way at once.
What you are doing looks great!
I even pasted a link on my desktop to this topic to stay updated.
Here is my feedback:
I am most interested in "Where Used" functionality and it works very well once initial indexing was complete.
I tried to work while indexing and SW crashed few times so I left the program do the indexing overnight- I had it in the morning- after that- no problems.
I do not have a document manager license key but planning to ask our IT team to get one and try properties search.
The preview is not working for me but is not critical.
Here is what I get:
It would be nice functionality to be able to export to excel the left hand and right hand trees.
Thanks again- my only regret is that I didn't come up with the idea and did not persist with the implementation :-)
I've been trying the program out on my Windows 7 computer running SW 2016 with files saved on a network and it's been working fairly well. It's a little laggy sometimes, but still works faster than SW Explorer. Startup and navigating to the file takes a while, but it may be because we have 23,000 indexed files. Renaming and moving a file seems to work good once the software compiles the list of where it is used. Preview brings up an error for me as well. Being able to export a Where Used list would be nice, but I've been able to a screenshot of it as an alternative.
Just tried running your software & get the following error message on startup. I also get the same message if I continue & try to pick a folder to scan. Is it something I'm doing wrong or is there a bug in latest versions? I tried both of your latest uploads & they both behave the same.
I'm on Windows 10 64Bit & SolidWorks 2017 SP1
Hey, when was the last time you sent out a update? how can you tell what one you have? By the way, still great program
I've add a tag with the version number.
A new version with a preview.
To be able to use the preview windows you have to download the version : 188.8.131.52 and the macro named "Bmpextract.swp" and copy them in the same folder and then just run Bibotac.exe and select the preview checkbox.
I very much like your tool! Thank you for sharing it!
I have a feature request:
It would by awesome if I can use wildcards (*) in the 'find and replace' option. For example, if I a bunch of files named
I want to get rid of everything between the tilde (~) and the file-extension.
This feature would make my life much easier and I saw some other engineers on the forum struggling with this!
