What are Unique Node Names?
BRYTER now enforces unique Node names. When Nodes are copied and pasted within the same module, "copy" will be appended to the duplicated Node's name.
Why would you use Unique Node Names?
Previously, when Nodes were copied and pasted the Node and its name would be duplicated without any change to the Node name. Now, "copy" will be appended to the Node name. When a Node is pasted more than once, "copy" is followed by a number, e.g. "copy 1", "copy 2", "copy 3", etc.
This enables authors to better navigate the module, remain in control over author values, and confidently reference the correct Node when necessary.
💡 Note that this does not interfere with updated Nodes. They share the same Node name throughout the module as one Node replaces the other rather than coexisting side by side.
How to use Unique Node Names
You can copy and paste Nodes and Transitions within a module and across multiple modules. You are not limited to one Node or Transition but can copy a whole sequence of Nodes.
Hold SHIFT to select a range of Nodes. You can use your ordinary shortcuts like CTRL-C (CMD-C on a Mac) to copy and CTRL-V (CMD-V on a Mac) to paste Nodes and Transitions.
If you are not familiar with keyboard shortcuts, you can also select the context menu of a Node, which displays all the available commands.
