Cannot rename tools in my shelves Alias 2021

Hi folks. I can't seem to rename the tools I've recently dragged into my shelves or the control panel. I'm using a prefset imported over from Alias 2020, and I seem to be able to rename a select few, older tools.

 

The tools retain the custom name in the name edit box, but don't reflect that change in my shelves. This is even with saving my preferences before restarting Alias.

Any help would be massively appreciated!

When you say you cannot rename tools on the shelf, do you mean that when you ctrl-double click and the dialog comes up and you change the name and label, nothing changes on the shelf?  The name you would see in the pulldown for the tab in the shelf and the label you would see below the tool icon.  Or is it that the name reverts back after you re-launch the product?   If it's the latter, I would ask it you saved your Preferences before exiting Alias.

if you have modified your clutch key setting, you might need to temporarily set the control key to none then hold down control and double click on the shelf item you wish to rename. hope this helps
