Use F2 To Add An Alias

Sometimes in the heat of the application design battle I just add a view or agent or XPage without thinking about the name I am assigning or thinking about giving the element an alias.  Then during the polishing phase I return to reorganize elements and assign aliases.

Ta Da!  Now when you use the F2 shortcut to rename a design element in 8.5.3 you can also update the alias value (if the design element supports it).

If you select more than one design element, you will get prompted to change them one after another!

Very handy.
