Summary0029374: Names of underlying geometric entities cannot be set for TopoDS_Compound
DescriptionIf a TopoDS_Wire and TopoDS_Compound are made from two TopoDS_Edge(s) and we try to set the name of these edges during exporting of entities to a STEP file, then we are only able to set the name for one of the edge in the case of TopoDS_Compound but for TopoDS_Wire the names of both edges can be set.

Please note that the STEP file exported through OCCT have to be imported in CATIA. CATIA extracts the names from underlying geometric primitives in order to display it to the user.

The example program that exports two different files one having a compound and other a wire is pasted as "Steps to Reproduce".

The output STEP files are also attached.
