Make texts easily renameable

A feature I’d like to see in Hopscotch is:

To rename objects much more easily

I’d use it for this type of project:

For clean code. I waste half an hour trying to name an object

Here are some examples of Hopscotch code that could be improved if we had this:

code cleanliness

Here is an example design I’ve made:

Just make it easily tappable

I’ve seen something similar in another programming languages, it looks like this:

version 30

Please make object renaming easy to use, that’s all I want:)
Petrichor has a good idea as well, adding the ability to rename it in the code

It already is tappable. Sometimes it is very difficult and not just for texts. I usually end up renaming it half a month later the next time I work on that project. It’s probably a bug. A better way would be to somehow make objects able to be renamed from the object list in the editor.

Great idea, naming objects is a very annoying task

YES
Objects are so hard to rename now and having unnamed objects is so confusing

I agree. It’s a huge hassle to rename them

Maybe a sidebar in the all objects editor that lets you rename things? Like you pull it out from the side of the object or something?

I’m not sure how good that would look, but I’m not an artist. :sweat_smile:

I agree with this as well! I find it very hard to rename projects sometimes.

I think this is a great idea, I can’t rename any objects I made without using AE’s shortcut, or be tapping again and again to try and name them.

Great idea. AE’s shortcut’s useful too right now.

This would be really helpful, especially for pixel arts

we need to make renaming objects more clickable. every time i want to rename something it takes me like 40 tries to get it

My shortcut was made as a response to everything that currently doesn’t work well or has not been implemented in HS. It’s a great modding tool, and my goal was to encourage THT to implement it and make it available to everyone because of the capabilities it has.

Wait you can rename texts? :exploding_head:

Yeah it is really hard right now. I re-open the project multiple times to succeed.
