Renaming files in the product library

By default, the name of the map document associated with a product class may be named NewClass.mxd. To make the name of the .mxd more meaningful for your product class, you may want to change the name of the .mxd so it matches the product class's name. For example, you have created the TLM product class for your Topographic Line Maps, and you can change the template .mxd file's name to TLM.mxd.
