Renaming a character in Action is broken right?

This was a feature added in last update or one before it? this is currently broken isn't it? if you try to change the 'name' or 'proper name' of a character it doesn't work. Just wanting to confirm that.

What are you trying to do?

Using 5.0.35.3 I was able to change a character's name to %text% and attached the demo I did it with. Doesn't work perfectly but that is more %text%'s fault than the new feature's fault (it strips out capitalization and %PCase[]% only capitalizes the first word, so multiple word names look incorrect when changed).

Test demo with commands like the following and you will see that the new name sticks.
adrift Code: Select all
x John
rename John to Bob
x John
x Bob
rename Bob to Sam
x Bob
x Same
