I'm working in CS4. I have a comp where the layer name of some text has been changed. Is there any way to reset this so the layer name is the source text (which after effects defaults to when a new text layer is created).

My AE machine is in the middle of a Cinema 4d render so I can't test this out at the moment, but try editing the name, backspacing or deleting to remove the name completly (leaving it blank), then pressing enter. I seem to remember that working.
