Name shapes in a Powershape

The states of a PowerShape are defined through its shapes and their names. For each state, a selection of shapes is visible and others are hidden. The syntax of a shape name is like this: Name [N]

Name can be freely chosen and should be a human readable description of the state. N has to be a number and defines if the shape is visible in a certain state. For the first state, all shapes with N equals 0 are visible and all others are hidden. For the second state, all shapes with N equals 1 are made visible and all others are hidden. And so forth.

To add background shapes that stay always visible, N should be -1: Background [-1]

To add shapes with each state one after another without hiding them, N should be proceeded by the plus sign +. This means when the next state is activated, the shape stays visible: Next Layer [1+]

Note: to manage the names of the shapes open the Selection Pane with Alt+F10.
