Pinned topic 7.6.1.2 new element has to be renamed twice?

‏2012-10-26T20:01:59Z |
When I add a new element like a component or class, it adds the element with a generic name like component_0. So I edit that name in the model view. Then when I go to the features of that element, the name is still the generic component_0, so I have to edit that name as well. How can I make it so that the model view name is the name in the features?

    Hi,
    I suspect that you have your browser set to display labels.
    To explain, there are at least three subtly different ways to configure the "names" you see in the browser.
    1. Select Label Mode from the "View" menu (this shows the labels of each element rather than the actual name)
    2. De-select Label mode from the "View" menu (this shows the name of each element rather than the label)
    3. Select "Show Labels" from the "view" -> "Browser display options" menu (this shows the label rather than the actual name)

    with "mode" 1 & 2 changes made to the name (or label) in the browser will also change the label (or name) in "mode" 3 only the label is changed.

    I think it's a bug - I keep meaning to raise it but I keep forgetting because I alwways use browsers label mode (mode 1 above).

    Hope this helps, also I hope it's right it seems to be from the quick test I've conducted.

    thanks! I'm not sure I followed your suggestions, I just unchecked view labels from display browser settings and got it to work.
