Default FR: Remove "untitled midi item" from item names

Please remove "untitled midi item" from the item name. It's really useless and unnecessary:



it would be better to have something short and clear like track name with midi item id number:



Thanks!

+1 Default name should be a media item preference.

Modifying language files is another workaround:

Code:
[item]
E57128C4770463B2=

Here's a text file with that code:
https://forum.cockos.com/attachment....1&d=1634396135
For those using default English, placing that file into REAPER/LangPack directory and selecting it in Options > Preferences > General > Language will remove "untitled MIDI item" and "glued" from item names.

For other languages, LangPack files are plaintext and can be edited similarly.

all created or glued or freezed items names (midi or audio) should be configurable with wild cards like we have for the other scenarios (render and recording)

And all the available wildcards should be available for every scenario, example: Render has $tempo while recording has not, and this should not happen.

Nice! Was just about to suggest this.

I've got this as a custom action mapped to a toolbar button in my main toolbar. Works well for me - used it for years.

The script is available in ReaPack, I believe.
