More out of curiosity: In the regular editor it is possible to rename a variable via the popup tooltip string that says "Press shift-Enter to rename n instances.....". It seems this is not possible in the editor of the app designer, or am I missing something? This was a very useful feature - will it be included in a future release? (I am also suprised that the 'undo' button is not working, while ctrl-Z / cmd-Z does... why?)
Best regards, Florian

I am unable to find which version of MATLAB addressed and added this functionality to AppDesigner, but at least back to R2022a you were able to update a variablename and apply the changes to all instances with the Shift+Enter option similar to working in GUIDE, and simple scripts/functions.
