Hello developers of iToosoft,
   I'm making a large forest, I've already set the names of Geometry list, Area list and surface list. BUT! when I want to pick some other simple objects to TEST RENDER. The forest always rename the name in geometry list for me.
When I want to change objects I must always renamed the objects in the geometry list or aera list. I don't want to the names in the list are always the same as the real object names. I hope I can disable the auto rename feature manually.

Can you show me ?

Hi, there is an option in to configure this behavior:

In C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsmax\<max version>\enu\plugcfg\forestpack.ini:

assignGeomName=1

Setting it to 0 will disable the auto-rename. Please note this value is read on start, so aftwer updating it you must restart Max.

I hope that helps.
