[Bug] Projucer disregards Plugin Name field


#1

I just created a new plugin project named “nameTest” and in the Plugin Name field I set it to “MyPlugin”. When I build it, all the plugins created are named “nameTest”.

Shouldn’t the project that Projucer creates, create a plugin that uses the Plugin Name field?

This was on the latest develop tip using Xcode.

The Plugin Name field is only used to set JucePlugin_Name and JucePlugin_IAAName in AppConfig.h. If you want to change the name of the built plugin binary, you need to use the exporter Binary name field.

Ah, ok. Thank you.

Seems odd that there’s multiple places for a name, though.
