As from Unity 5, Unity has started auto-incrementing your object names if they end with a number.
So if I have a prefab called “Sofa_1”, and I drag two of it in the scene, the second one will be automatically renamed to “Sofa_2”.
Duplicating an object in the scene will also either auto-increment its trailing number, or add a new trailing number to it.
This behavior is driving me bonkers because it’s causing me to lose track of which files I have in my scene.
How can I stop this behavior?
