More flexible renaming methods

Post by Lnferior »

Hello, during use, it was found that renaming a large number of objects is complex. Therefore, it is recommended to introduce a GUI module that can batch rename objects in the form of a table. The names in the table can be directly mapped to the object names after saving, which can reduce the complexity of renaming operations.
Cheers!

A batch-rename functionality already exists, as an add-on, found in Modules -> Developer Tools -> Alias change.

However, during the use process, it was found that after selecting the object to be renamed according to your method, the name of the object still needs to be entered again in "Replace occurrences of", which undoubtedly increases the required workload. I think that if the name of the object can be automatically recognized in "Replace occurrences of" after selecting it, it will help simplify the operation process.
