How to reset text layer name?

So we used to be able to reset the name of text layers (so that they automatically are naemd after their content) by simply deleting the name. Now Figma has removed the ability to do this. Has anyone found another way to reset the name, or are all my layers now ruined?

Still not working for me, but Figma said in another post that they are working on fixing it

Mine doesn’t work either, it’s very inconvenient

I’m also facing the same issue and it’s quite frustrating!
Before, when I erased the entire Text layer name and hit Enter, the Text layer name would automatically update to reflect what was written in the Text. If the Text was edited afterward, the Text layer name would also update accordingly. This feature was working up until recently, but now it’s not functioning at all.

I’ve also had the same issue for a week or two it seems

Hi everyone, and thanks for your patience! The fix has been launched. If you refresh any open tabs you should find that you can now restore your text names to auto-update as previously.

“Delete the layer name and keepit blank to resync with the textlayer’s value.” Why is this feature gone? Very inconvenient!
