material and color name

i append a mesh with 10 colors or materials to a file
but the color names where changed to something like material.001 ect,

i have lost the color names of the first file

is there a way to transfert the materials with the original name and no names changes?


How did you lose the color names from the 1st file? That would be why the materials aren’t named on the appended mesh. Material names usually remain the same automatically.

i think it may be because the same name where already used in the new file
so it was rename
i’ll try to experiment more with and see what happen


when using link or append data , make sure you’re appending it :smiley:
