Metadata Name not shown

Post by Sundance »

The [Metadata] section allows to specify a "Name" attribute.
The documentation says that the Metadata information is shown on the Manage Skin screen.
However, I cannot find the Name there. Am I missing something?

I thought so too at first, but that is only displaying the path of the .ini file and not the Name value. See this sccreenshot:

The Metadata in manage rainmeter does not actually show the metadata name.
what you are seeing is the path and actual skin file name

Yeah, I had never really noticed that. I'll have to chew on it.

Hmm, wouldn't it be useful to add the Name attribute to the dialog? I suggest this as an improvement.
Until then you might want to update the documentation accordingly.
Thanks and best regards,
