Selection menu improvement

These two cubes are a group, named two_cubes.

Yet the selection menu shows another name, in this case Group238, which is an increasing index for the groups in this file.

In my thinking it would make more sense to display the actual name.

Looks like two_cubes are object names, not group names. Not really the same thing.

Yes, two_cubes is the object name.

The settings for the selection menu say “Show object name/type”

I do not understand why the selection menu shows this Group238 name instead of the object name

Hello - I guess the ‘top level’ object is the group as far as selection is concerned. It’s not going to tell you about the objects inside the group…


ok, now I got it.

I didn’t realize I named the objects when they were both selected and grouped. I thought I had named the group.
