Label vs Name in Report errors

Postby run_the_race » Tue May 04, 2021 5:03 pm

Am I mistaken or does it seems like the errors logged to report view reference the internal `name` which is never shown to the GUI. Hence with the user is only able to see/edit the `label`.

When I get errors that refer to something like `Sketch007`, I don't know what the error is refering because I have logically named all the sketches. Should the errors put the label in brackets after the name they refer to?

Is that really the behaviour or have I got it wrong?

You can search tree view for `Sketch007` (internal name) and system will find it regardless of what you have labelled it.
