One of the other nice things you can do when you are working with your layers panel, and you’re trying to get things ready to send out to your designer or developer, you might find lots of times where you’ve got lots of things called rectangle 1, or type 1,  or box 2 ,  ok and they’re not really that useful for the developer. 

So what you can do is, - let’s go  down to say, our icons which is our services, ok, and open that up, and say you want to start naming these icon 1,  3, and 2.

So it’s our video, photography and our app.  ok we’ll  go down and do the last one down here.  Actually we’ll drag him up for the moment.  Get him up to be with his friends, ok so what we can do is a nice little option for naming things, otherwise you’ve got to double click everything to get into it, and spend ages doing it, so the way to do this is to tab between them.  Double click this one, and I’ll call this one icon-hyphen  and I’m going to call this one video. Bring the tab down, you can see icon-photography. 

Rather than having to click on every single one to get it to work, you can just tab between them.  ok, so icon - hyphen, this one is going to be called app, and this one is going to be called icon- hyphen print.

Alright a nice little shortcut for naming your layers.
