Editing a prop often ends up accidentally renaming it

Recommended Posts

Clicking into a prop creates a misleading user experience.  Two things appear to be selected (two things in Blue).  The title and the the Universe (with an DMX prop).  Only the title is really selected.  While working reassigning channels/universes I click into a prop and attempt to enter a new universe by typing in the new number.  I noticed that the window doesn't look it has focus so I click on the universe, "get focus", type and hit save.  What I often miss is that I *did* have focus it just happened to be the title.  So I end up is the prop gets renamed.

It would be helpful if the universe or channel number was not highlighted (blue in my case)  and appear to be selected.

What beta version are you using? And what Windows version? I am not seeing this with 5.0.16 on Windows 10. A screen shot might also help.

Thanks for using the beta version!

Notice that in the first image there are two blue regions.  I sometimes don't notice that the name selected because I'm focused on the part I'm about to edit and it looks like it is selected.

Thanks for the screen shot!

This will be fixed in the next beta release.
