Well, you can always use the Element ID Manager to change the IDs of many elements in one step.

Giuseppe:

1. If the element has a number (like Slab 01 Ex), the ID will increment as new elements are added.
2.In your Work Environment check User Profile Schemes > More Options > Assign New Element ID to Each New Element.

Thanks both for yours answers. I already know how I can change them,and I check my W.I., but my question was why the name is always the same, and if I want to scheduled them using the ID................ all will be scheduled or not.
Thanks any way may be the problem is in our template file we use.
Thanks again.

The element ID, like other element parameters, is a default value. So the ID should be set before using the tool. Changing the ID in the template, like changing other default values, will make this easier to use.
