Object Names

When you add an object, SiteSpinner┬« Pro will automatically give it a name beginning with the “obj-“ prefix. You can view a selected object’s name in the following locations:

Although the system-given object name will be unique (that is, no other object in the project will share it), it won’t necessarily be descriptive or memorable. You can change the name of the object to something more descriptive by typing over the system-assigned name with a new name in any of the Object Selection combo boxes.

An object name may contain up to 10 alphanumeric characters. It cannot contain blanks or non-standard characters or begin with a numeral.
