Description 2020-03-09 09:40:38 UTC
1.  Text sections added to a master document are identified as "Text" in the master document navigator.

2.  Enhancement request is to give the possibility to name these "text" sections (like it is possible to name sections, shapes, hatch patterns, etc.)

(reason: if several text sections are used, then it is hard to know the content/purpose of each text section, because they are all listed in Navigator as "text".)

Could you please add some steps to follow. When I add a section (File > New Master, Insert > Section) it's pretty simple to rename it (Navigator > context menu).
Comment 2 2020-03-09 23:25:39 UTC
0.  Open master document
1.  Use Insert icon in Navigator (Master View) to insert two files.
2.  Select  second inserted filename in Navigator (master view),  right-click and insert text.
(In Navigator (master view) there should now be four elements, the first and last named text, the middle two are the filenames that are inserted.)

Basic problem:  Try to change the name of “text”  (does not seem possible)
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2020-03-10 11:11:15 UTC
Okay, confirmed that renaming Text is not possible as it is known from the Navigator in default edit mode for any object (but not in the master view mode).

Question to me is whether this function is really needed. You don't add much text to the master that naming those section is necessary. And other than that it's indexes that can be added, ToC, ToF etc. well named.

So to me it's a WFM but no objection to add the rename functionality.
