Before PF 7, I used to be able to rename a file the way I can in Finder by clicking the file name a second time and then editing the existing name. That no longer works. I must now do it another way. Why ?

    I'm running 8.0.2 on two machines. One of them works correctly (a second click allows me to rename) and one still doesn't. I don't know why one would work and another wouldn't.

    If I continue to slowly click (so I don’t end up opening the file) on the same file, it will eventually work after a random number of tries. Sometimes 5, sometimes 6, sometimes more.

    Found a pattern …. it works every time in “list" view but in "as columns" view, it does not work.
