Retain Element ID

In IMPACT Revit, when saving an element, it will also create an Assembly for that particular element. The Assembly name can be seen by selecting the element after it was saved or in the Project browser under the "Assemblies" tree.

There are some situations where one wants to change the Assembly name .This approach was previously causing an issue where the Element ID was also changed.  

It is now possible to retain the Element ID after renaming the assembly and resaving the element.
