Short description of error

Unable to rename a folder with file browser

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Load factory settings.
  • Ctrl+O to open file browser
  • Ctrl+ click a folder to rename.

Nothing happens, try the same in Blender 2.80, you will see that with ctrl+ click will highlight the text field.
Is there any other way to rename a folder?



Event Timeline

You can pick Rename from the context menu.

What context menu and where to find it?

Edit: Can we have an option for the people who do Right mouse click select? I couldn't think of that menu at all :(
Because with RMS the context menu is with the w key and now with this, there is an inconsistency
