Option to keep the original name of an imported object instead of kiwi_#


#1

It would be pretty useful when working with a lot of imported files that will later be exported under the same name, taking advantage of the new “Individual Export” option.


#2

The thing is all objects in Qubicle have to have a unique name. So if an object is imported with a same name it gets an index. If I change that, I break functionality at a different end, namely mesh export. I understand your problem but there’s not much I can do about it. Sorry


#3

On second thought, what I could do is remove the name index during QB export. I’ll add it to the list.

Hey there!
I noticed you already added the feature, thank you!
It’s a really nice option to have, but that’s not exactly what I meant. I’m very sorry for not elaborating on the idea and not choosing the right words for describing it.

What I mean is if I import a file called, for example, round_table_top, have the matrix for that object called the same.

Sorry again for the confusion, and thank you for the great work.

I am sorry but I can’t do that. QB supports naming of objects inside the files. If someone names an object X but saves it as Y then after import the object would be named Y, if I change the behavior in the way you propose. That might be useful in some cases, but not so much in others.
I could add that behavior for other file types that do not support object naming.
