Object Name Greyed Out

Postby Lazzah » Thu Oct 11, 2018 9:34 am

Hi all, here's an interesting one!

While working on one of my WIP games, one of the static object names has greyed out. I can still edit the object but I cannot rename it. I have no idea how I managed to cause it to grey out and I cannot 'ungrey' it. :?

Any ideas? :anyone:


Edit: I solved it by saving the game file, closing it then reopening it. I would, however, still like to know how it came to be greyed out?

Could it be cataracts? :wink:

Oh funny har har! :haha: I had my eyes tested last week and am getting new specs. The optician said I had the beginnings of cataracts in both eyes! :nerves:

Been there a few years back. Had an eye operation. Nothing to worry about. Took about 10 - 15 minutes tops and you're not going to believe the change.
