Renaming Resources

Recommended Posts

The attached Marionette example shows, how to renames resources from the active document.


It contains several custom nodes:

1. "TypePopup" : An Input Node, which translate a readable popup (Line, Rectangle, ImageFill etc. ) in the internal used index number (VectorScript appendix)

2. "GetRes" : This Nodes, collects the specified resource type from the active document.

3. "ReplaceString" : This node, replace any part of a string (text) input with a new string


This example could be used for sorting and organize mass of ressources.

- Find/Replace Text (or Characters) in the resourceName

- add prefix or suffix to the name (As example .sym to symbols to clear names or prefix with the building number etc.)

- produce an index number to a name for sorting 

- etc.

Very cool. Is there a way to turn this into a menu command with a pop-up that asks for Type, Prefix, Suffix, and Find/Replace?


I've yet to have any luck with the Convert to Menu Command option for Marionette networks, but I also know very little about Marionette...
