Cells from palettes don't keep their names when copied

• Jul 16, 2019 - 04:08

If one makes a new palette and drags a cell from the default entries into it, the names that show as hints while hovering the mouse-pointer are no longer retained. This could be by design, but it seems that the behavior should be to keep the name information rather than lose it. For instance, if a user drags the one-flat key into a new palette, the hint-name should still show when hovering over in the customized palette: "F Major, D minor". Any reasons for so not doing? If not, maybe this should be sent to the issue tracker.

P.S. This seems to have been the same behavior as from the 2.x series.

When you typed 'makes sense to me', is that to say the loss of the information makes sense, or the request to have the information kept?

Also, if custom names are given via Properties as you mention, the same behavior (loss of names) occurs in moving from custom to custom palettes. This should be a fairly easy code fix if this gets accepted.
