I've added tanks to refine my layout and I needed to rename blocks. Doing so, using both the edit label from the dropdown or changing it from properties, resulted in these errors, e.g. "Invalid name in To: SUMMER_1A, Link97391", where SUMMER_1A is the new name of the block. Since I can't really see the old name of the block anymore, is this easily recoverable or should I better restart?
Can this problem be addressed to the SynchronizeNames option?

Also, what is a safe way of renaming blocks?

just for the records, the issue was fixed by refreshing every single connection between the blocks that changed names.

I am going to answer your first question then  :)

Not sure whether it's the safest, but certainly the approach I always use:
[list type=decimal]
[li]in the Properties pane, I change the Name of the Block (while the SynchronizeNames property is set to 'true'), without any space or other special character[/li]
[li]then I switch SynchronizeNames to 'false'[/li]
[li]and go back to Name and modify to what I want it to be (e.g. with spaces, ..)[/li]
