How to reset the top browser node name back to the file name?

A - answer If you have manually overwritten the top node name in your Inventor document browser tree and now you want to revert it back to the default value reflecting the document filename (ipt, iam, idw, dwg, ipn), you can use the following iLogic macro (rule):
ThisDoc.Document.DisplayName = ThisDoc.Document.FullFileName  'not required
ThisDoc.Document.DisplayNameOverridden = False 

The internal property reflecting the displayed browser name is "DisplayName".

If you just want to change the browser name by clicking, long-click it, delete the original name (Del; in older versions you will need to add a space - hit spacebar) and confirm the change by pressing Enter. The name will revert to the document name (file name).

The browser tree name is reflected also in the document window title (Inventor application title bar). On the other hand, the file name is displayed e.g. in the layout tab name in a given document window (on the bottom). In a reset state, all these three names (occurrences) are the same.
