Hi, I have some simple task to do.

I want to create flag to describe materials. Its allready work as a custom automatic descriptor, but...
Sometimes I would like to make a custom list of materials (for example - detail tool). Default settings lets you to write something in custom rows, but I want to make it as a set of rows which can be selected from a defined material list.

I allready created a scheme. I have 2 main problems:

1. How display material parameter as a name of the material (not number)
2. I just changed default parameter which was a text parameter - now its material parameter, I changed it in every macro, but it doesn't show up in viewport.

I appreciate every tip you have.
