    Layer AutoNaming On Copy

    by caneron » Thu Oct 17, 2019 7:17 pm

    Right now, If I have PRJ-01 and I duplicate it, it becomes PRJ-1. If I duplicate PRJ-1, it becomes PRJ-2. This make sense. It would be great if MM dealt with leading zeros intelligently.

    In an ideal IDEAL ideal world, there would be something like "TruCompDuplicator" in MadMapper, so you could duplicate and rename based on string. Essentially a group duplicator / renamed. When you have hundreds of layers that auto naming stuff means you have to go through and rename rename rename so your layers match to your grid IDs etc - which is just a lot of work.

    Maybe there's a best practice for this I'm missing (Franz!?)

    mmm ... makes sense.
    I'm also frequently annoyed about the leading zero problem.

    as for renaming, it would be good to be able to select 100 surfaces, right click and "auto-rename sequentially".
    While this makes sense for 1d lists, but it will break for 2d grid naming schemes. Ideally you should be able to program this yourself
    with a module. But we're not there yet sorry ...
