Rename menu command for Views

Status: New Idea
by johnstda on ‎01-31-2014 10:20 PM

I propose there should be a menu command when right-clicking a view called Rename, which allows you to edit the name of the selected view.It's not intuitive to think of double-clicking the node to rename it. Also, to rename a view other than the one activated, I have to first activate it, then rename it. It would be quicker to be able to rename a view which isn't currently activated.


Maybe when a view is first created, the node name could be highlighted ready for editing its name too. This would be handy.


This along with the removal of the weird behaviour in the tree view whereby it shifts to the top every time a new view is activated, would speed things up a bit.

Not saying that adding this is a bad idea, but you don't have to activate a view representation before you can rename it in the current interface.  It isn't a double-click to rename - it is two single clicks (one to select, the second to rename).

I didn't realise that. I'm just learning, so some of my posts may be a bit
off the mark. Thanks
