Rename Short Description of Locations broke?

Postby DazaKiwi » Tue May 08, 2018 1:33 am

This appears to be broken..Bugged.

I've tried two methods and in Debugger both give a "ERROR: Property ShortLocationDescription not found." message.

Only way i have had success is with using a property group to do it.

See little demo with all three tests which includes the work around mentioned.

Thanks for remembering this one, Lazzah, you already have my upvote from last time it was brought up.

My RenamingLocationDemo does show a work around for this which isn't hard to implement since you can force a name change through group properties. It is the third test in the demo above.
