Trying to add materials - "Name has already been taken"

Trying to add purple heart to my materials for a project. Every time same error…“Name has already been taken”. But I don’t have any purple heart added to my materials.


it’s already in the material list dropdown


Not in mine but it did let me add it.

An issue with re-using a material name after the same name wad used previously and ten deleted was noted a few months back and reported and no good resolution was made… BUT you can use a “custom” material and slightly modify the name and it will work perfectly… for instance using the name “purpleheart” with no space or “purple.heart” or “purple-heart” or “purple_heart” are each treated as a new unused material type…
