When joining named objects, the name of the object (user defined identity) changes into something like “Object xxx”.
Sometimes this change is very bad, for example when dealing with object trees (IK chains) in Bongo. There you work with a Tree view in which object names makes much sense. If then Joining some objects (perhaps a little line here and there which where forgotten before naming) then you loose any previously named names.
Suggestion for R6: Keep the name of the first selected object when joining objects so as to not discard user’s value added work naming objects. As it is now joining objects causes an “identity crisis”, sorts of.
Edit: Suggestion #2
Highlight relevant objects in Treeview
When viewing objects in the Bongo treeview (object hierarchies) the objects which doesn’t have any explicit Bongo settings could be greyed in the Treeview in order to help the user more quickly find the key objects with (explicit) settings.
Greyed objects should, although not being “Bongo active” so to speak, still be selectable, as to allow for setting properties, if need be.
