Naming

Match Case

Enabling this option will take into account letter case when renaming the objects after being mirrored.

Prefix

By default, the mirrored copies take the same names as the originals. Here you can specify a prefix that is added to the names of the mirrored copies. This helps you to tell the mirrored copies apart from the originals in the Object Manager.

Suffix

By default, the mirrored copies take the same names as the originals. Here you can specify a postfix that is added to the names of the mirrored copies. This helps you to tell the mirrored copies apart from the originals in the Object Manager.

Replace
With

These two text input fields work in a similar way to the search and replace function found in most word processors. When naming the mirrored copies, the tool replaces the text defined by Replace with the text defined by With.

This function is typically used, for example, to automatically replace the text L_ at the start of each name for the character's left side with the text R_ to indicate the right side. Therefore, L_Hand becomes R_Hand when mirrored. If the option Match Case is enabled, the letter case will be taken into consideration.
