723 Clicking to rename

#1 Post by m-a-r-k » 04.06.2016, 16:16

Anyone else having difficulty clicking on a filename in Details views to rename it?
I often have to click many times, sometimes easier to click away elsewhere then come back and try again.
Doesn't always happen. I have "Allow rename on slow double click" selected. It is far worse if this is unselected.

I also have noticed this problem starting in Release 723. I have to click the file name many times before rename works, but sometimes it works right away.

Several times I have had to use the F2 key to force rename.

It's working perfectly today so far!
I keep forgetting about the Function keys - thanks for the reminder.

I have also experienced some issues clicking a filename in in details view when trying to rename or when selecting part of the filename to copy it. I noticed it the most with 722 and 723.

No such problems here with Build 723 64-bit donor
A slow double click on the name always starts the rename function.

I have this with 32- and 64-bit versions, Windows XP and Windows 7.
It is really bad at times, such as today, where no amount of clicking will select the filename.

If you use NC-mode try to change Tools - Settings - Select items
- By click on (extension or) free space in label
text 'extension or' was changed in 724 version, in 723 forgot to mention it
Focus item (NC-mode only)

- By click on item icon
Focus item (NC-mode only)
New options were introduced, but users still click on any place they accustomed. After that your problems will disappear.

Not that I ever use double clicks for renaming, preferring F2, but slow double click doesn't work at all with 724, 64bit; doesn't matter if in list, detail or structurless views. I even set the Windows mouse double click speed at maximum to better accommodate slow double clicks.

Works only when using NC mode.

Slow double click works fine for me with one exception - in normal selection mode it is not possible to use the icon for slow double click (in Windows Explorer is the same).
