    I have installed a few addons in BFA. See attached image. Can I change (adjust) thew name of MACHIN3 in
    Machine3 ? So that there are not all capital letters ?

    Hi

    Should be possible. Open the addon script and have a look at the header area. There should be a bl_info block. It contains the name, description, author and so on, In this block you will most probably find your label in big letters. Change it and save the script.

    Kind regards

    Reiner,

    Thank for your reply. If I am right the files are written in Python. How must I open this files ?
    In Windows Notebook ? Or another editor ?

    Kind regards,

    Whatever fits your needs. Python files are text files. It opens in any text editor. But i would choose a code editor since it gives you syntax highlighting. VS Code for example Or Notepad ++.  You can also open it from within Bforartists, in the scripting layout.

    When you install it then such addons gets written to the appdata / roaming directory into the Bforartists folder.

    Here the path at my pc for the screencast addon. There you should also find the MACHIN3 addon.
