Cannot name sprite the same as deleted sprite

first you can’t name a sprite the same thing as a deleted sprite. if you name a square “Circle” and delete that square, you can’t take out another sprite and name it “Circle”
this could be intended though, so might just be a useless topic

Just go off of the editor and back on, then you can.

I don’t know if this problem really deserves an entire topic.

Have this bug too.

It’s probably caused by you deleting the object from the editor, but not from Hopscotch’s memory.

Deletes happen when you re-enter the project, so you can name it to the same thing after you come back. (That’s the “unpacking code” process) This has been around for a really long time now but needs to be fixed.

This is one of the glitches Hopscotch has that you have to deal with, sadly.
