Hello!
When I import a custom character that I made, it will get a name like FileName00 and the next one FileName01 etc.
Meaning:
I have made several characters, which are similar, but maybe have different hair or hats, and I have saved them with different names in the Actors Custom group (say Charlie, Bob, Fred). But when I put them on Stage, they will get a name of the original file, and the next one same name with a running number. When animating it's sometimes difficult to see which object I working on. Can I somehow get the naming right in the timeline?
reg.

Hi Calle  If you haven't already discovered it for yourself, simply go to the Scene Manager: double-click the item you want to rename and the new name will show up in the Timeline.
