"Timeline already contains a layer with the same name" when changing layer settings in 6.6.7


Recommended Posts

I just started a project with 6.6.7 and any time I try and modify the settings of a layer (layer condition, standby display, etc) I get the "Timeline already contains a layer with the same name" message on any layer which has a default name. So now I'm faced with having to rename a large number of layers in the project - which I guess is good housekeeping, but is not really how I planned to spend my afternoon!

I assume it's related to the following line I spotted in the release notes - "Duplicate layer names could cause erratic behavior and are now prohibited."

Is there a workaround to avoid this, while hoping that it gets fixed in 6.6.8 ?
