Naming Selected Objects


Access this tool from the Objects palette or from a custom palette or custom menu that you have configured with the Objects - Name Selected tool.


Use the Objects - Name Selected tool to automatically name all selected objects on the page.


To name all objects sequentially, enter a string followed by a space and a number or letter to increment (or just enter a number or letter if you want the objects named simply "1", "2", "3", etc. or "a", "b", "c", etc.). Objects will be named in order based on their ID numbers.



You select three fields and then choose the Objects - Name Selected tool. You are prompted to enter the name of the first object (see dialog below). You enter "Chapter 2 Objective 1" and click "OK". The fields are named:


     Chapter 2 Objective 1

     Chapter 2 Objective 2

     Chapter 2 Objective 3

If the last word of the name you enter is NOT a number or a single character (e.g, "Chapter 2 Objective"), all objects will be named the same.
