Definition which iProperties are used for the browser names. The default is the combination of the Title and the Part Number.
All iProperties that are used in the file can be taken. Additional properties are: {File Name}, {File Extension}

Localized iProperty names of Inventor system properties like “Bauteilnummer” cannot be evaluated.

This attribute is only evaluated if the attribute ‘UpdateLibraries’ is set to true.

SkipUpdateNode

(empty)

If property name and property value is set, all files with that property and value will be ignored for browser node update. Property name and value must be seperated with a pipe.
If Value is set to ‘*’, all files with configured property will be ignored for Update Browser Node. ‘*’ means that the value of configured property can contain any value.
If property name is set and value is left empty, all files with configured property where the property value is empty will be skipped.

Files with the configured property will also be skipped for reset nodes!
Find more information about this feature in the Features” section “Skipping files for Browser Node Update”.

UpdateViews

false

If set to true also the label of VIEWs in a drawing are updated. If the property value contains ‘:’ then it will be substituted by ‘=’.

We recommend to set this to false if sections are placed on the drawing.

UpdateRecursive

false

If set to true also the browser names of sub=assemblies are updated.

We recommend to set this to false because of possible performance issues.

UpdateOnOpen

false

If set to true the browser names are updated when the file is opened and not write protected.

UpdateOnSave

false

If set to true the browser names are updated when the file is saved.

When it is the initial save of a file the update of the browser node is not done, to avoid issues with the filename.

UpdateContentCenterFiles

false

If set to true the browser names of Content Center Files are also updated.

This switch is currently not evaluated. Use attribute “UpdateLibraries”.

UpdateFunctionalDocuments

false

If set to true the browser names of “Funcional Documents” are also updated.
“Funcional Documents” are components created with Frame Generator, Design Accelerator, Tube and Pipe or Cable and Harness.

We recommend to work with setting false, as it might happen, that not all components of “Funcional Documents” are updated.

UpdateLibraries

false

If set to true the browser names of Library files are also updated.

After changing the config file Inventor must be restarted, that the new settings take effect.
