How to reset view numbering in Inventor?

A - answer How to set up my IDW/DWG drawing copied from an older model so that after deleting all views, it creates new views again starting from one (VIEW1) and sections again starting from A?

Save the old drawing with the deleted views in the "Templates" folder, i.e. where all the templates are stored, and then use that "template" in "Create New File" to create a new drawing. The views will be created again starting from "VIEW1" etc. Then delete the file in the "Templates" folder again.

Another option is to create a new, blank drawing and copy all the sheets and views from your drawing-in-progress into it.

Similarly, you can "reset" the numbering of dimensional parameters d0, d1, in parts, etc.

An alternative approach is to renumber views in bulk using an iLogic rule. E.g. (simplified, without resolving details and sections):

oDoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument
i = 1
For Each oSheet In oDoc.Sheets
	For Each oView In oSheet.DrawingViews
			oView.Name = "POHLED" & i
			i = i + 1
	Next oView
Next oSheet
