I'm inclined to think the answer to this is "no", but I'm gonna' ask anyway.
When you duplicate a layer in PhotoShop, it creates a new layer with the same name + "copy", and if you duplicate either again, it names amends it with "copy 2" and so-on... is there anyway to NOT add the word "copy" to the end of the duplicated layer?
PhotoShop does allow you to have more than one layer with the same name. When building a website, especially with the navigational elements, I may reuse a layer a couple dozens times. So I end up with "master nav button", "master nav button copy", "master nav button copy 2" ... "master nav button copy 17", etc. When I organize my files to hand them off to coders, I like to have them very organized. Less room for errors. I organize different pages into folders, different components into sub-folders. No layers are ever named "Layer 42", and such. When I do the final clean up before passing assets off, I remove all the "copy 2", "copy 3", "copy 4", and just group them in the appropriate folders with the other elements they relate to.
So... good god is there any way to make it NOT add the word "copy" and the serial numbering to the end of a duplicated layer?
In the unlikely event that someone knows the cure, thank you in advance.
