View Full Version : Problem renaming layers

02 February 2005, 11:28 PM
I am a newbie to AE so this is probably a dumb question. After dragging an imported file (psd) from the project window to the comp window, the file appears as Layer 1 in the timeline which is the same name as the source file. How do I rename the layer? Hitting enter brings up the layer in the comp window and layer settings ctrl+shift+y is grayed out. The same goes for pre-comp layers and duplicates of layers.

a highlight, and single enter click on the timeline layer, or 'project window' file layer, will allow you to rename layer.

Right, that works. I was hitting the enter key on my numeric pad, duuuuuh
