Rename a layout

You can rename any layout, even the currently active layout. Layouts you create are automatically given a default name. The first layout is called Default. You can change the name using the custom layout editor.

If you're using the touch screen for live switching, consider using shortened names for layouts. Long names get truncated on the touch screen.

You can include certain international characters in layout names. Pearl supports common character sets for Western and Central European languages, Nordic languages, and Russian. For a complete list, see International character support.
