    Default Named objects

    Is there a way to see a list of all the named objects (just the names) used in a website?
    I've changed the names of some of the objects and when I go to the "Link to Anchor" block it's really messy (and confusing)

    If you use XDP, go to Utilities/Galleries/Name Gallery. XWD, even the premium version, doesn't have a Name Gallery.

    LGF, in XDPX & Pro+, you have access to the Names gallery.

    In your products, the list of Names appears in the Link to Anchor, where they are listed in last-used order and in the Utilities > Names box & Web Animation > Reveal/Scroll > Trigger object name where they are in alphabetical order.

    I've deleted the unwanted rectangles that served as anchor links, but when I go to the nav bar (for the used shapes) and check the anchor links, it still shows all the old ones too. Utilities>Names just shows the text for that particular anchor block.
    Thanks once again.

    Info Re: Named objects

    For those starting off, here is an approach that is OTT but stops you getting lost: CSS - Pixie Anchoring.xar

    Egg, you are missing the point about jumping to an Anchor. As I said (Construction, fourth bullet) if there is enough page length, a followed link to an Anchor will move to the top.

    You can make the viewport shorter or the zoom greater and things will happen. The file does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Ah yes but as you stated:
    For those starting off, ......
    I would find on publishing your page that the links don't have any action
