> The name will show the objects Journal ID which is not very useful and a bit ugly. I'm not sure how to change this. Do we need to keep track of the ID ?
> (bert) Could you explain what you mean? The journal is ID-based, it does not have or preserve file names. How does that relate to Etoys?
> (karl) When I open a picture in Etoy from the Journal the pictures name in Etoy show the Journal ID.
> (bert) Ah, that's true. Yes, would be nice to fix this. The problem is that we re-use the file-dropping logic, and the file name we get from the datastore is that funny id. Maybe if we simply mangle the name instance variable of the drop stream ...
> (karl) Hm, I also have a issue when I try to open files programatically that I have no reference to them. It's probably the same issue, the drop handler do not return the value. Do you have a suggestion on how to change the logic for opening files ?
