Differ Name and content in text layer

Postby Jkoseattle » Thu Dec 28, 2017 5:37 pm

I have many text layers in my project. Some of them are the same text, but they are on different parts of the screen. It's very difficult to tell them apart in the Layers Palette. If I change the Name of a text layer, it changes the text too. I want to have the text content of the layer be different from the name of the layer. For example, perhaps two layers both read "MY INVENTORY:", one is on the left and one on the right. I want one layer to be named "Header Left" and the other "Header Right". How is this done?

If you right-click and convert to vector, you can change the name independently.
