5 clicks to change layer name?

Personally, I like the way Rhino 7 behaves in this regard. Extremely well done and predictable. However, it’s very confusing that Rhino 8 sometimes requires 3 clicks instead of 2.

I sometimes count 5 at average click speed. :joy: :melting_face:

The doubleclick event while editing the name should end in the textbox and not go through it.
That’s my only complaint.
Because it’s a bug.

Many thanks
I had not noticed this behavior
This solves this issue for me
I just need to “practice” this delay, or use F2
Still, while editing, a double click to select part of the name separated by non-alphabetic chars would be great, instead of making the layer current.

Please show what you mean, here a double click in a text box that is being edited will select the whole layer name, or word, if there are spaces.


In SR3 RC it works as expected.
So forget that.

In a text box it works like a normal text editor, it works ok.

When editing layer names, once you are in edit mode with the text cursor, you double click to highlight a word, it sets Layer to Current.

Edit: Oh it works in latest? Are we talking about the same thing?

No, that is healed in SR3 RC.

Hi Gijs

Small vid to enplane
Hop clear enough

Just adding, renaming anything should work this way, views, snapshots, display modes, blocks …
As all those elements have structured names

Best Regards
