How many people use the apostrophe key, in LAYOUT?

If you're clever about naming, it might save a bit of frustration.

The only place I use apostrophe is to activate the "Search Item By Partial Name" command.

I'm paranoid about putting anything other than "_" and numbers/letters into my item's names... there's always the chance that a plugin or some other implement in Lightwave... or even an external program will mess up because the general convention is to only use numbers and letters with no special characters.

Don't use it. I have hundreds, thousands of items in a scene. Much slower to memorize and type, than to select in the scene editor or search current item selection box.

I type fast, so the memorizing, and effectively naming, is what would stop me.

It seems that naming the stuff one Selects MOST with unique names might speed things a bit.
