I am having an odd issue we just upgraded from 2012 to 2018. Now every time I try to save as a part and change its name, when its referenced anywhere else, solid-works crashes. This is a big problem for me as a lot of my job is renaming standard parts and having to close everything to use the rename tool in Windows is a serious hassle as some of our assemblies are very large several thousand components large. This was not a problem in 2012! Oh it doesn't crash if I save as copy then replace the part in the assembly, which is my current workaround, but for multi referenced components this is a big pain.
For me this progress has involved a step backward.
I am using SW 2018 SP3, all my colleagues are also on this and seem to have no issues. I have uninstalled, reinstalled. Tried a repair nothing has worked so far. All suggestions welcome at this point.
