One Click Rename

Post by bluej »

The main reason I still use an old version of XnView is because I need to be able to click on the file to rename or copy the text (like the ordinatry windnows way of doing it). I need this feature, and I am unable to do that with the new versions (this is besides batch renaming which is a great).

I know I have to hit F2 and there's pop-up, but I need this with the click of the mouse and copy or edit individual file names.

So, I'm currently testing out v. 91 - and I see in Options that there is ticked box that says "one click rename." If it's already ticked, then why am I still unable to click and rename it? Nothing happens when I click on the image file.
