I have two levels with following names and numbers
Level Name - Number
Roads - 4
4 - 318
Main aim is to use keyin to rename Level 4 to Text, like this.
Text - 318
When i keyin LEVEL SET NAME 4 TEXT, the level "Roads" with level number 4 is renamed to "TEXT". like this:
Text - 4
4 - 318
I tried using quotes LEVEL SET NAME "4" TEXT, but does not work.
I cannot rename using level number 318 because this varies from file to file (I have bunch of files to process). Any suggestions how to rename levels that have 'numbers' as names?
Thanks in advance

here is another trick
if the level called TEXT is not made yet, then open the level manager and create it.
now while still in the level manager right click on the level called 4 and choose remap level then choose the level TEXT to send it all to and everything on 4 will move to level TEXT , this is ok method for one file. Renaming may not work if you have cells and shared cell using several levels including the level called 4...btw are you sure its not "Level 4"

Just checked in Connect Powerdraft CE10 in one of my own files: I created a level called 4 with No. 318. Then used key-in LEVEL SET NAME "4" "Text" and it got renamed to Text, no problems, output as desired. Maybe you forgot to put Text in ""?
It works if 4 is the only level in the file. Try create 5 more levels with any names. MS is going to internally number then 1 to 5. Then try renaming 4.

There are about 250 levels in my drawing with internal numbers... still no problem renaming. There must be an internal No. 4 because I can't renumber (not rename) another new level to "4".
