In the latter batch of the version 1 series of Pixelmator Pro, there was a terminal "
defaults write
" command that could be used to turn off the automatic ML naming of a layer when a photo is dragged into the layers panel.

Could you folks repost that string for Pixelmator Pro version 2 (can't find the original post)?

Also, could you include that as a Preferences item directly?

Hey Rob, the command is:

defaults write com.pixelmatorteam.pixelmator.x enableSmartLayerNames -bool false

We'll also see whether we can add it to Pixelmator Pro preferences somewhere.
