Renaming Design Layers bears great risk...



the scenario is as follows:

Lets say you have some Design Layers named 'option 1, option 2, ... option 5'

You have a sheet layer for each option and you have a list an each sheet layer that adds up some quantities of each option.

The list works with a filter that searches for content on the layer it refers to, so the list for option 1 searches for elements on design layer 'option 1' and so forth.

Eventually you decide to discard option 1, and you delete the design layer option 1. You RENAME all the other design layers so that option 2 becomes option 1 and so forth.


The problem is: the filter in the list doesn't recognize the renaming. The result is, that every list on every sheet layer now shows the wrong data.


Maybe I got something wrong, but if not - I think this is quite dangerous...
