#     @Title { Qt Designer }
#     @Tag { designer }
# @Begin
# I can't see @NameOf in the manual, nor anything that seems to do this

I think that @Section&&designer @Open { @Title } should produce `Qt
Designer'. The problem is that you need to know which kind of object
is tagged (in your case, a @Section) to retreive the correct
information (in your case, a @Title).

def @NameOfSection right x { @Section&&x @Open { @Title } }

should work, and you may also try (I did not check if these are
correct, and I am not a Lout expert),

def @NameOf
  named @Where { @Section }
  named @What { @Title }
  right x
{ @Where&&x @Open { @What } }

Hope this helps,
