9. I placed a Pin from another Scene and changed its name, but now the older Pin has that new name too, and I want them to have different names. How do I fix this?
By placing a pin from another scene, you are not creating a new copy, you are instead placing that Pin into your new scene, so they are essentially the same Pin in different places. If you want to alter it, create a new Pin and make your changes that way.
