I Am trying to use some custom categories in the Navigation Pane to stay more organized. The problem is renaming objects - the rename only applies to the shortcut. Is this by design? Is there a workaround?

Why would you expect otherwise? If you rename an object it could affect queries, forms, reports, code and things might not work.

Why would you want to show a different name anyway?

I've never bothered with custom grouping of Navigation Pane.

Right-mouse click on the name of the object in the Navigation Pane.

The short-cut menu pops open.

If this is NOT what you want, remove the table from the custom group, rename it as you want, then put it back into your custom group.

Wait a minute, you don't rename objects? Ever?

I do not want it to show a different name, I want it to show the actual name.

Ahh, this makes sense. It's the obvious answer and I did not think of it. I thought I had to switch out of Custom view mode and back into it. But this gets me what I need.
