Quality of Life Request: Rename multiple layers at once

Recommended Posts

I'm making heavy use out of the new "Select Same" feature and I'm really loving it! One little touch that would make it even better is if we got the ability to shift-select multiple layers and then could click on a single name box of a single layer and rename all of them at once. That would be incredible. 

As an example of how I would use that to improve my workflow: 

Let's say I'm making some vector trees for an illustration. It might be made up of vector brushstrokes for the trunk and branches, shapes for the leafy bits, and more vector brushstrokes clipped to the shapes to add texture. I'm currently naming each layer something like this "bt4-l" for "bushy tree 4- lines" or "bt4-s" for "bushy tree 4- shapes." It would go a lot faster if I could just quickly rename a bunch all at once. 

I do use color tags for some things (see my request for more color tags in another post) but especially when creating assets dedicating a color tag to something forevermore just isn't appropriate.
