Rename a locator

If the name of a locator is no longer suitable, you can rename it. The best practice is to include a locator method abbreviation as well as a short description in the locator name. For example, "FL_StartDate" is a Format Locator that extracts the starting date from a document. You can change the name of a locator by following these steps:
  1. Expand the Project Tree and select the class that contains the locator.
  2. Optionally, view the class contents if they are not already displayed.

    The hidden class contents are displayed.

  3. Select the locator to be renamed in the Project Tree.
  4. On the Design tab, in the Edit group, click Rename Rename icon, type a new name and press Enter.
    Note Locator names need to be unique for a class. If you type a name that already exists for another locator, a message is displayed.

    The locator name is updated in the Project Tree.
