Please Help with Re-naming Patterns
I am new to using GIMP, liking it very much.
I recently have created some patterns.
I can't seem to name them in the list though.
I re-sized it 100x100
I mapped it seemless
I saved it as a GIMP pattern ie .pat
placed it in my pc folder and check the box to make that folder show up... and it does.
But the pattern has the generic GIMP pattern name
I double click it and type in a new name press enter and it just goes back to the generic name.
Everywhere I have looked suggests it only does that on patterns I haven't added, but I obviously have added it.
Can someone please point out my error here and how I may rectify it?
Thank you all in advance.

Seems if I save it as .PNG rather than .pat it shows the correct name and is just as functional.

RE: Please Help with Re-naming Patterns
I confirm that I have the same problem... can't rename the pattern when I should be able to do so (I'm on Linux). However I did get it saved with a meaningful name. You can rename the pattern by opening it as an image (diskette icon in the Patterns list), and saving it under another name, and entering an meaningful name that time.

Pattern can also be plain PNG images in your "patterns" subdirectory, and you can rename these at will from outside Gimp.
