Today, it is tedious work to rename a configuration parameter : the name of the defined configuration symbol is independent of the name of the configuration rule, which is independent of the target layer’s name.
Most of the time, except while using complex configuration rules, the expected behaviour is to link these three objects’ names.
So it is necessary to rename each object, one by one…
In Patchwork 2022, we have developed some smart helpers :
One to automatically rename the configuration symbol when the rule is renamed.
And another to rename the configuration rule and symbol when a configured layer is renamed.
This second helpers try to suggest the best name for the configuration rule, depending on the existence of a “.” in the layer name and/or in the rule name
These helpers come with a light reorganization of configuration tool buttons.
Should it help you to work with configurations ?
