How to reset a feature name
Chances are that if you have attended one of the SOLIDWORKS Training Courses you will have been encouraged to rename your Sketches and Features either through a slow double click or hitting the F2 key.
 
However what if you need to undo this and go back to the default value?
 
Taking a Hole Wizard Feature as an example what if you were to create a Hole Wizard feature at one size and then rename the command before subsequently changing the size or type of hole for that feature? The descrption will stay the same as you have already renamed it.
 
In order to reset this back to the default feature name simply do the following
 
1) Right Mouse Click
2) Select 'Feature Properties'
3) Click Reset
 
You'll now see the feature name has been 're-linked' back to the hole wizard parameters and will update if you change the sizes once more.
 
Example size hole 13 dia with Linear Pattern
 
I've renamed 13dia Hole Wizard Feature to a non-standard name
 
The renamed feature has been changed in diameter to a larger size (25dia)
 
RMB - Feature Properties
 
Reset
 
Feature is now back to normal conditions and will update if changed again
