MIRA Automatic Scripting Name Assignment (!?)

February 23, 2014 | 7:42 am

This drove me Insane for hours last night.
Couldn’t figure out why objects were being given generic names (flonum, flonum[1], …).
I blamed that poor little [autopattr (@autoname 0)], who was entirely innocent.
Turns out that mira.frame, (understandably, predictably, obviously) auto-assigns Scripting Names to all objects it supports if they are not already named.
Fine, no hard feelings, MIRA…. But this is a problem when I only want to use the very specifically assigned Scripting Names in a Umenu, for routing purposes with pattrstorage, and dont want 500 ‘flonum[i]‘ clogging up my ipad screen.

Any suggestions for how to circumvent this?
