Modifying Molecule Name in Target List

Modifying Molecule Name in Target List davis  2021-01-12

Hi Skyline team,

When I try to rename ( right click on molecule in target list >modify>name) a molecule in my target list, the chromatographic vanishes following name change. Is there work around to avoid this?

Best! SSD

The only workaround would be to tell Skyline to extract the chromatograms again by going to:
Edit > Manage Results > Reimport

The Name of the molecule is part of how Skyline decides which chromatograms in the .skyd file correspond to which molecules in your document. I am not sure that we ever thought about the fact that that means your molecules will lose their chromatograms if you change their names.
