Author Topic: Rename material?  (Read 2970 times)

Is there anyway to rename a material?    I know some manage options have been added in 0.8.0, but name is not one of the things that you can edit.   I also just tried renaming the corresponding .json file in the material folder but that didn't work either. 

Yes, the name is not editable yet. It's used as the material identifier by the application. Not the perfect behavior but it should change in the future

Alright I figured out a workaround.  I had done the first step, but you also have to edit another file

-Rename the material's .json in the ..\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Allegorithmic\Substance Alchemist\materials
-Edit the assetDatabase.json, Search and replace the old name with the new name.   File is located in ..\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Allegorithmic\Substance Alchemist\

Not the best, but it worked so far.
