When we are creating linkage, or navigation, from the Properties panel or the Flowchart, we want to be aware of the name of the clip. Let's say I want to link up this Footage button to this Timeline here in Clip05-tahoe. I would want to, probably in this case, leave the name of the button Footage. I probably wouldn't want to change this to Clip05-tahoe. However, you might bring in footage that you want the clip name here to change the name of the button. By default, now, when I click on this button and I create the link and I link up to the Timeline here, it says the name of the link right here, and it doesn't change the name of the button, which you could actually find right here with the button selected in the Properties panel.
However, this way it used to be, the default is this Set Name from Link Button used to be selected. When that happens, and I'll just undo this, so I can start over again, I'll click Set Name for Link, when that happens and we link to something, then the name of the button changes based on the name of the timeline. So just be aware of that. Most of the time you might not want that. But sometimes that could be a timesaver for you. And if you aren't aware that this is there, and you get on somebody else's machine, or this is automatically set that way, so this Set Name from Link is checked, that could drive you nuts.
So just be aware of this option if you want it or do not want it.
