Renaming Annotation Layer "RulerData3D" deletes the Ruler data normal?
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Win 64 bit blender 2.80 / 2.81

If I create a Measurement line it appears a annotation layer named "RulerData3D".
If I rename that layer to something else the line becomes a normal annotation line without measurement data (no dashed line with measurement value).

Is that a normal behavior. That would mean all measurement data are inside of one notation layer and there can't be more with different layer names, colors or thicknesses ...

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) @Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) I did not create that code, but looking at the code, the ruler is handled using this name and imho this is very weak system, maybe we could add some flag for the ruler instead to be limited to name.

@Antonio Vazquez (antoniov) definitively a flag situation here at the very least.
Is this something you can tackle (or pass it on to the other Grease Pencil developer?)

I can take a look. If I'm not able to do it, I can reassign it.

Antonio Vazquez (antoniov) lowered the priority of this task from Needs Triage by Developer to Normal.
