Hi everyone,

Sorry for what is probably a simple question. I've scanned the forum and not found an answer. I've uploaded all of my models with prototype names...and would like to change the names to something less cryptic for my shop. Is there a way to change the model name within the shop without having to re-upload the model?

The zip/stl/obj/etc name is non important for buyers. The text that will be used for the window title, what they will see, is in the Edit page. It appears as a flat rectangle, very low contrast grey against the white background. It's editable. And in reality non important for links, what matters is the number in the link ( http://www.shapeways.com/model/134137/balls-for-gridiron-foo tball.html works as well as http://www.shapeways.com/model/134137/ ), so you can change as many times as you want.

With modern webs, you have to try moving the cursor everywhere and clicking everything, clues are poor compared to previous styles.
