Description sdc.blanco 2019-10-30 13:11:58 UTC
Problem 1

1. Create a Shape
2. Copy and paste Shape (multiple times if you want)
3. Look in Navigator (under "Drawing objects")

Actual Result:   The copied shapes all have the same name.
Expected Result: Each shape should have its own name.

Related problem 2.

1.  Click on one of the (same-named) shape(s) in Navigator.  

Actual result:  all the shape copies (with same name) are selected
Expected result:  only the "clicked" shape should be selected.

Enhancement:  It does not appear to be possible to edit/change the shape names.

No issue on version

None of the mentioned problems appear in LibreOffice version
- Shapes are individually named.
- Copied shapes have an increment number in their names.
- Renaming the shapes is available.

I propose to close this report.

It seems, it's already been fixed.

@phv et al.: thanks for the verification!
