Text layers in Photoshop will auto-update the layer name with the text content of the layer unless you manually edit the layer name in the layers panel. Then it retains the manually entered layer name. How would one go about restoring this auto-updating of the layer name to a layer whose name has been manually edited?
After searching for the same thing for longer than I want to admit I tried this and it worked:
- ctrl + j - duplicate layer
- Edit text and commit changes; watch the layer name autoupdate
