Ok maybe not a quick and easy change but here is the suggestion:
Just a direct modification of the space_view3d.py script. IMO this should be default but hey if you want it then here is the code:
Right click the name field under item panel in the properties panel and select “Edit Source”
Select the space_view3d.py text in a text window
Go to the menu “Text” on the header and select “Save As” save a backup of this script (if you want to)
Select the text in the code.txt included in zip, copy it.
select starting line for this class ( VIEW3D_PT_view3d_name(Panel) ) and drag until you are at the bottom of the class ( row.prop(bone, “name”, text="") is the last line )
paste the text and save over the old space_view3d.py
And there you go, you may need to restart blender for the changes to take effect.
If anyone feels nice enough, could you please supply a space_view3d.py with only this modification in it (mine has been modified too extensively)
uh… supportive quick tip for adjusting UI and stuff… uh ya this is the right forum
