TVPX names

Post by Peter Wassink » 10 Jul 2014, 18:57

when saving a tvpx panel you'r expected to fill in a
Unique name (for internal use)
and a Name for the panel.

would it be possible to make it so that "unique name" is automatically duplicated from "name" field ?
so not necessarily remove the "unique name"-textfield but just to put it under name field and let it fill up with a duplicate of this name field, that way you can always add something if you need?

i always find it a confusing panel thats asking a lot of time from the user.
i think a change like this could make it a bit friendlier

I might be wrong but I think the unique name is meant to be a name unique to the creator, not unique to each tvpx generated... so perhaps once defined, it could default, from then on, to what every unique name was last entered?

i don't think so because for that purpose there are also the:
creator, license file, and copy right fields

a default would be good because
another thing is that the existing tvpx panels, when you want to export them again, do not remember any of this data

there is lots of room for improvement here me thinks

When saving a new TVPX, the Unique Name defaults to com.yourcompany.name.01 which would suggest that a company name be inserted perhaps with an incrementing number at the end for successive TVPX files.

What if the Name defaulted to the name of the custom panel being converted to TVPX?

Actually, when you update a TVPX for a custom panel that has been converted before, the previously entered information comes up as default allowing you to save over the old TVPX with one click.

Maybe TVP developers can clarify about the Unique Name entry?

Sven

As part of a new improved TVPX I'd like to be able to load more than one custom panel into the same TVPX. It could save a lot of time on both ends.

I never understood this concept with names - all panels that we share at work come up with the name My TVPX, even if the panel name in my TVPaint screen is different.
I think this has to be more simple and intuitive...

Here's a post I made a while ago explaining the different "names" when exporting a TVPx :
So, a few explanations about the different names :

In TVPaint 11 "Unique Name" has been renamed into "Identification number", which is more accurate. This "Identification number" is only seen by you (when someone install a panel, it does not appear)
Here's an example : let's say that you make a panel containing a few brushes, you export it and share it on the forum. You give it the identification number "D_Fine_Brushes", and the name "David's Awesome Brushes 1.0"

Several weeks later, you decide to add a few brushes. So you add the brushes in your panel, and when you export it, you keep the identification "D_Fine_Brushes", and as you have added something, you name it "David's Awesome Brushes 1.1".
So, when someone will download the panel and install it, here's what will happen : TVPaint will look if an existing panel has the same identification number, and if it founds one, it will consider that we are installing an update.
4. The name you give the file in the Save To path. That is, the actual file name that is saved to disk.
Sometimes, the name of the tvpx file should not be the same as the panel's name. For example, in our case of "David's Awesome Brushes 1.0", having apostrophes in a file name is not really recommanded (and some OS don't allow apostrophes in file names)...

I just wanted to say that we are aware that this can be confusing and it is in our todo-list to improve it :-)
