[Solved] Change the name of a spuh

How do I get to the taxonomy editor nowadays? I think it was deleted it at some point, but it's still in Help. Even so, I can't get to it. It's not in the Advanced menu. V5.2 build 49.

I need to change the spuh "Hawk sp." to "Buteo sp.", but I can't figure out how to do it without the taxonomy editor. A dialog in taxonomy viewer says to use taxonomy editor, but, as I said, I can't get to it. It won't let me add Buteo sp. because it thinks it is already there, and thus says to use taxonomy editor.

Thanks, so much.

Hi David,

Sorry for the confusion. I do need to remove the taxonomy editor from the Help topics. D'oh!

The functionality you need is in the Taxonomy Viewer (F8).

Just right-click on the Thing you want to change the name of and select Change Preferred Common Name as shown above.

Let me know if I can assist further,

Jeff

I saw that option, but it was not clear to me that was what I wanted, so I didn't try it.

But it worked. I had to close the viewer and come back into it to see the change.
