This drove me Insane for hours last night.
Couldn’t figure out why objects were being given generic names (flonum, flonum, …).
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.
Well…. I figure mira needs some way to differentiate between objects, and if you don’t give them a name it will.
And, BTW, for anyone who was concerned about this for the reason I was (trying to use the contents of patter to load umenus for routing, as in the Andrew Benson video processing system example), if I recall, I just did some regex thing to ignore anything stored which I didn’t name myself.
