Allow table cell to rename PTC_Common_Name (Windchill Name)

Allow table cell to rename PTC_Common_Name (Windchill Name)

Currently in Creo Parametric 2, a user cannot change the ptc_common_name from a table cell, like can be done with any other parameter.  The ptc_common_name is the Description equivalent in Windchill.  It is so poorly integrated that it does not show up by default in the parameter list in the model tree configurator in Creo P2.  Users have to type it in by hand in order to even see it.

To change the ptc_common_name requires that the user go into Windchill and rename each item one-by-one in order to fill out a BOM in a drawing in Creo P2.

PTC, please allow renaming of ptc_common_name directly from Creo Parametric.

I guess that you can modify ptc_common_name value by setting temporary relation:

ptc_common_name="my new description"

That won't work after the object has been checked in, only for newly created objects.

Once the object has been checked in, the only way to change it is to "rename" it in Windchill Commonspace.
