Document menu commands

The Document menu contains the following commands:

  • Rename a document - Provide a new name for the document.
  • Document properties - Enter a description for the document; this description displays on the Documents page, in the Detail panel. If you have access to Release management and have Onshape's workflow enabled, this box also includes a Not revision managed checkbox to indicate that this document and its objects not be included in any Release management workflow.
  • Copy a workspace - Create another document with a copy of this workspace in it. The original and the copy are not linked in any way. The copy is opened automatically.
  • Copy version - When you are viewing a specific version of a document, this command appears in the menu. Create another document with a copy of the currently open version in it. The original and the copy are not linked in any way and no release meta data is included in the copy (except for Part numbers, if they exist in the source version).
  • Version properties - When you are viewing a specific version of a document, this command appears in the menu. View and/or edit the name and description, if desired.
  • Set the default units for the open workspace. Default units set for a workspace affect all Part Studios and Assemblies in that workspace, all values displayed in sketch dimensions and all other numerical fields (for example, in all feature dialogs). You can set default units for all documents (and workspaces within a document) created through your account in your user profile. Note that the default unit setting has no affect on imported files.
  • View and edit the active workspace's properties (including a list of tabs, parts within the tabs, descriptions, part numbers, revision numbers, and states). If Release management is enabled, and automatic part number generation is also enabled, there will be an icon to automatically generate a part number for each part.
  • Print the graphics area of the active tab.
  • Close the document.
