So, I renamed my Master Properties in the Essential Graphics Panel. But it is only showing up with the original controller title like Slider, Menu or Angle. Worked flawlessly before the latest update. Did I miss something or just a bug?

Screenshots, info on what properties are linked, how the effects were renamed and all that. No point asking blanket questions. So far nobody has even mentioned this, so something specific is going on.

There is not much to see. Properties range from rotation to custom sliders and menus. But I just noticed changing the name and changing it back seems to update the master property. Kinda annoying to repeat that for dozens of compositions...

Update: Changing the name in the essential graphics panel updates the name. But using the comp in a new comp changes the names back to the default for this comp.

I have the same issue and it's very annoying. Names of properties are gone in my existing project using master properties. When I update the name of a property in the Essential Grpahic Panel, the name is updated on the nested comp. Very annoying to do that on all my Master properties. 

And if I drop a second time the same comp I already corrected, it looses the names (screenshot)... What's going on ?

Has anyone been able to solve this? I have the exact same issue. Renaming the property in the essential graphics back to "slider" and then typing the name I want updates it only for my current session. If I quit and re-open Ae all my Master Properties are back to "slider"/"checkbox" etc.

 

Someone please provide a solution, it's so frustrating!

Same problem here. Latest release notes say "Fixed an issue with Master Properties that was causing the push and pull buttons to be grayed out after keyframe interpolation changes." — maybe this got broken while fixing that? I wish this would be fixed — super annoying.
