Ok, that's the obvious solution I already used.
But how about flow reconnection. Do they reconnect automatically if the new trigger has the same name as the old one?
In case of a single usage of a particular element (whose trigger should be changed) it is negligible. But in case of reusing the element somewhere else in the model the deleting of the trigger leads to (unnecessary) reconnections of the flows. Which could be avoided by just switching the dataTypeSetting in properties view.
