Can Items in the "List" be named?
« on: April 01, 2021, 04:28:06 pm »

I couldn't find an answer in the manual or the forum, although it might be there. I've learned that objects can (and should) be named. In the item list I find things like Group 01 or subdivision 12. Is it possible to name these? As always, I appreciate your help.

If you double click on something you can change the name in the properties dialog that appears. You can't double click on the item in the list dialog to edit it's properties - sounds like something that I should add.

That's an excellent idea.

That's a great tip! Workarounds are the daily bread of the software user, whether it's a free or exorbitant program. I agree with Johnar, excellent idea when you can manage. Since returning to Anim8or, I've noticed a lot of great features have been added over the past couple of years.
