If i use the Thea tool palette to make a sketchup material an emitter (for example) if i then change the name of the SU material in the SU editor window, the emitter property is then lost and the Thea tool tool will no longer be able to select it?? When I click on the material the Thea tool window flashe, I can see the name for a flash. So it is no longer editable and because the name has changed, the material no longer emits as Thea cant reference it.

It didn't used to do that.

Does the refresh button next to the material list help?
The list refreshes in 2.0 automatically.
Can you share a sample file?
