Hello guys 8)

Is it possible to change name of the card by setting the short name of the card "name" to "somethingElse" possible?

Cheers,

Louis

Hi Louis,

no computer at hand right now?
Why don't you try it by yourself, much quicker than wainting for an answer here!
I promise you machine will not explode! 8)

"the short name" will throw an error but you can set THE NAME:

Code: Select all

...
set the name of cd "aaaaa" to "bbbbb"
...
Best

Hi.

Cards have long, abbreviated and short names too. But you cannot set a "short" name. You can only get one.
