F1 (or F3) is changing the name of an item

Theo Derks - NL (distributor) 2 years ago in Applications / Studio (Server editor) • updated by Oksana (expert) 2 years ago 3

Hi,

Changing the name of an item is very important when programming in Javascript.

Therefore, it would be great if the F1 or F3-key is pointing to the name-property of the item.

The same like F2 for changing the text-property, but now for the name of the item.


Thanks


Theo

Hello Theo,


You can rename items via Project Overview Panel.


For example: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw5TgGlnxM3CSVFPWE9fZ1FsTWs/view?usp=sharing


1. Set an item in Project Overview Panel

2. "F2" (go to Object Properties/Name)

3. Rename.

4. Enter (save a new name)

5. Esc (for back in Project Overview Panel)

6. Set next item with keyboard and etc

Hi Oksana,


Thanks for this tip! I didn't know this 'undocumented' feature ;-)


However, it will be still be great if we can change the name of the item by clicking in the Canvas and use F1 or F3.


Thanks
