Ability to link "Data set name" upon CSV import for Variables panel
Currently when you "load variable Library" from a CSV illustrator defaults each Data Set with "Data Set 1, Data Set 2, Data Set 3, Data Set 4... ect."
Currently the only way I know to rename that data set is to manually rename each data set by selecting that data set from the drop down menu, and selecting "rename data set" from the options panel, and then either typing or copy and pasting some text in.
I use data sets for more batch like designing, it would be really nice if we could bind the data set name to a variable the same way we do objects in illustrator. I know you can do this with XML data, but seem to lose the ability to do so when loading in CSV libraries.
This would be particularly useful because I use "data set name" with batch exporting which right now is a blocker to my workflow. since the way I want to name files is not ""Data Set 1.png, Data Set 2.png, Data Set 3.png, Data Set 4.png... ect."
ideally I'd prefer to be able to select that data variable go into options and choose "Data set name" as an option.
There is no reason to need a 3rd party script for something so basic!

I hope you have discovered and used the VI script to help with this issue!
