For most problems like unresponsive interface issues, in case the Reset Workspace doesn't help, then the unofficial, fast workaround is to:

1]  Open New

2]  Close New window

This is actually a fast succussion of short cut keys which solves numerous user interface problems which I get, even including the loss of personal sct settings... Not to worry though because the menu/file has always held up... Or restart formZ, or restart computer at the worst.

All in all, V9 is pretty strong, once I aptly use these commands.

If you select a material and open it in the Material Parameters palette, you can rename it there in the Name field at the top.

Tech, ariel is asking about material GROUP names...

ariel-

This is an issue and it is not currently possible to rename the material group in the default Material palette view.  You must change the material palette to List View and then you can change the group name:

I've got an issue where all my materials are showing as one colour in the pallet, running iMac Big Sur (which is proving to be problematic).

Also my 3Dconnexion space mouse no longer works in Formz, multiple preference delations made no difference.

Any help appreciated.

Single click to highlight the Group name.  Then single click again on the Group name and it should accept new text.

Andrew,

FormZ Tech does not recommend upgrading to Big Sur yet.
