You need to edit the GDL of the zone stamp.

If the name list is not in the zone stamp object, it could be in a 'Master_GDL' file that will be somewhere in your loaded library.

We have a Global Zone Stamp that was created by Applecore Designs which has a separate XML file that can be edited for the standard list of Room Names, I believe there was also a separate object that the stamp linked to where you could edit the list, maybe this is the same for the built in Zone Stamp?

As @Barry Kelly said, you'll need to open a library GDL file. I am using a GER library on an INT version (to translate some items into my native language) and for me it was the "Zone_stamp_macro.gsm" file which had to be changed.

I've found it in parameters but I can't find where i can change all the option names. Every other tab is empty? 😩

USA version has two Zone Stamps. O! has the Room Name Dropper in the Stamp itself. 02 uses a Macro.

And just to be a little different the zone stamp I use (well not any more with labels), has the room names stored in a 'Master_GDL' file.

The advantage of this is that it is not called as a macro from an object - it loads automatically when the library is loaded.

This means  any object has access to this parameter, just create the parameter name in the parameter list of the object, and you will have all of the room names available.

There are 45 slots for the names - I get an error if I delete any of them ( to shorten the list). If I substitute the name for '' (nil) the list on screen has lots of blanks. Any thoughts? I am using the zone where the list in the Master
