Materials get renamed when copy/pasted between files

Anyone else get this?


All of these materials came over when I copy pasted some objects between Rhino sessions, but only one material retained its correct name… the other got renamed “physically based (x)”.

Oh, and when you copy similar objects from different files into the one, how do you merge materials?

And of course, this is nested blocks we’re talking about, so replacing manually is as with everything with blocks, a chore.

Thank you, that worked well!

Is the renaming due to Rhino handling pasted blocks from other Rhino files as any foreign imported geometry? Seems to me that Rhino ought to recognize stuff coming from Rhino…
