Renaming Named Objects in AutoCAD

As your drawings become more complex, you can rename named objects to keep the names meaningful or to avoid conflicts with names in drawings you insert into the main drawing. You can rename any named object except those that AutoCAD names by default, for example, layer 0.

To rename a named object

  1. From the Format menu, choose Rename.
  2. In the Rename dialog box under Named Objects, select the object type.
  3. Select the named object from the Items list, or enter the name in Old Name.
  4. In Rename To, enter the new name, and then choose Rename To.
  5. Choose OK.

Command lineĀ  RENAME
