Alter configuration naming convention

Question asked by Donald Grunloh on Nov 7, 2014

Is there a way to alter the automatic naming convention of part configurations?

 

We design primarily sheet metal parts.  By default SolidWorks names the top-level configuration "Default" and the derived flat pattern configuration "DefaultSM-FLAT-PATTERN".  Our drawing sheet names are based off the configuration name, so our designers consistently have to rename each configuration "default to Fabricated" and "DefaultSM-FLAT-PATTERN to Flat-Pattern" Renaming configurations does not always happen so I would like to eliminate the extra naming step for the designers.
