How do I reset Unique IDs in version 21 and newer?

Created: 25.03.2021 | Updated: 12.08.2021

For AD20 and older, I used to follow this documentation: https://www.altium.com/documentation/altium-designer/sch-dlg-resetpartsheetsymboluniqueidsreset-part-and-sheet-symbol-unique-ids-ad?version=20.2 Now the option is gone.

Starting in Version: 21
Up to Version: Current

Solution Details

Note that the compiler does not detect duplicates of connectivity-independent UIDs, such as those for Parameter Sets, for example. However, with version 21 and newer, duplicates of these UID types are automatically corrected when a document is loaded.
 
This documentation goes into some detail on the new process:

Description = Reset Component Unique IDs

 
4.  Afterwards, you will see a new entry in the [Custom] category

5. Drag select it into the top bar to install the command

6. When you use it, choose the following settings
