Hello,

Have always worked with the classic editor, but since I wanted to make a new presentation I decided that I could use the new editor. But.. There are a few flaws that need to get fixed.

I have 2 playlists, 1 for images and 1 for text. These 2 must display at the same time. 
The playlist each consist of 22 steps. 

Problem 1: I can't rename the playlist widgets, so I copied the first one and I get Image widget (1), (2) etc. so I could make a different. Please let us rename the widgets.

Problem 2: Because I cannot rename them and he adds the image widget on top, I had to move all of the widgets. That was time consuming and not a quick way to change the order. Please make it so that we can click and hold, so that we can drop it in the right order.

Hope you can fix this soon!

Hi there! Thanks for the good information. I'm going to summarize your two use cases below, can you confirm that these are correct?

  1. Unable to rename widgets within a placeholder. You would like to be able to give specific names to widgets in the same placeholder.
  2. Unable to drag and drop widgets within a placeholder. Clicking on the arrows takes to long when you have a large amount of content in the same playlist.

I just talked with some co-workers on this, and you can actually rename a Widget within a placeholder in Editor!

Just click the duration icon on the widget in the placeholder, there you will be able to edit the name.
