Actually all said in the title, you can test attached fla file,
Code is too simple:
console.log(exportRoot.someName); //lib.Symbol1 console.log(exportRoot.someName.name); //null
This code worked without a problem in the previous versions of Animate (at least last two ones, as I remember there was some kind of the problems before too)
Yeah. It seems the Animate exporter doesn't assign this name property anymore.
But may I ask you why do you need this name property?
Simple example might be:
Let's say I have 4 movieclips and set "click" eventListsner with one function on all of them, previosuly I could catch which one was clicked like this:
But now I need to name movieclips manually first.
Animate 2018 and prior don't set the .name property. 2019 does set it. If 2020 isn't setting it again, that's a regression, and should be reported as a bug.
