Hello William,

in our opinion it does not make sense to rename the file to the DIR-description. The description is a value which can be changed easily. It's not unique and stable like the keys. Additionally, what language shall be used for the file name? Chinese?

What is the reason, why you give the file a more "speaking" name?

Is it because you want to see this in the CAD system's assembly tree? Usually you can also configure the tree to display additional values like description.

Hope this helps.
