Templates to create common files and drawings, lost references

We are using the PDM templates to have all the common parts and drawings created automatically when we start a new project. We also like to rename the files in the folder at the time these are created as follows:

In "Edit Template Files" of the "Edit Template" of the PDM Enterprise Admin tool we use for the drawing:

  • Template Source file: TEMPLATES\template.SLDDRW
  • File name: %Number%.SLDDRW

And for the part:

  • Template Source file: TEMPLATES\template.SLDPRT
  • File name: %Number%.SLDPRT


The parts are renamed to the new generated part# (%Number%), but the drawing is still refering to TEMPLATES\template.SLDPRT. Is there an option in EPDM to automatically update the references as well when a part or drawing is renamed with the Template wizzard?
