I think I understand better what’s going on here. If you ever edit the name of a clip, it will always have that edited name, even if you replace the clip with a new file with a different version number, date code, or different name all together.
I think this would certainly be best an option to either always show the true clip name, or always show edited clip names.
I think you can see what the true source file is by looking at the “Files” tab in the specific tools window. I’ll attach a screen shot where you can see this. In the case of a project I am working on right now. I had to repopulate the session with new files with V2 added to the file names. They all updated except the first song because I previously had to manually alter that clip name due to the excessive periods/dots in the song title. Now when I update that clip to V2, the V2 and true clip name doesn’t appear in the montage. If I look at the files tab I can see that the source file is right. Not ideal but it’s something.
More annoying is something I just am noticing now, maybe it’s related to updating to 10.10.3 but when I go to replace file…it brings up a file browser but that browser always defaults to my “documents” folder rather than the last folder I used in Wavelab. This really slows things down since all the files I need to repopulate are in the same folder (not the documents folder). Too much mouse clicking involved now.
In one case, closing Wavelab and reopening made Wavelab remember from that point what folder I last used to “replace audio file” so when I go to replace the next song, the correct folder is already open.
