Yeah, i think it should be pushed up a bit if it is still on that trello board. I know all that dandy vr support and what not brings you cash, but this is kinda basic workflow funcionality (not saying that it's easy to make, basic in terms of necessity for normal work).

I just noticed- its possible to rename global variables similar to how renaming global events is currently handled--

Right click on the global variable and Make Local Variable, rename it, right click to set back to global

Are the references still intact after that sort of fiddling?

Sorry about that- should have tested in depth.

It updated correctly for multiple actions in the same FSM but after checking again, not in other FSMs. So no, it doesn't work :/

+1 for hoping global variable renaming is on the feature list

Hi,

 yeah, Global variables renaming is a major issue, unfortunatly the solution isn't there for technical reasons without seriously compromising the project. hopefully a solution will be found at some point.

 Bye,

 Jean
