I can't seem to change the name of my stored User patch

Weird.

I'm sure it's something that i've done (or not), but I can't change the name of a stored user patch.

My usual mode of operation is that if I like a sound, then I will store it under the User category with an appropriate name. For some reason with this one it refuses to be renamed. I may well have forgotten to initially give it a new name?

In any case, I now have 2 patches with the same name - which doesn't seem right either. The original preset, and my saved/stored patch.

I can actually change the name (done), when I go back to the previous screen, the name is there but if I go back to categories/user the name is lost and reverts back to the original. I've tried re-starting the MODX but no joy.

I'm asking because perhaps this is a bug. Although I'm hoping it's just something dumb/stupid that I've overlooked. But it did work as expected previously.

When I have had problems of this nature it was often a result of "directory confusion". I was seeing the original patch instead of the modified one.

I have done this successfully:

Call up the performance that you want to change

Go into Edit mode

Touch the Performance Name. This brings up the keyboard and allows you to change the name.

Store the performance. It should say "(old name) will be overwritten". Do not store it as a new performance or you will have the doubling.

I hope this helps.

Of course, if these are FACTORY performances, the names CAN'T be changed. The factory performances are not editable - you must save any changed version as a new performance.
