Click to rename

I noticed another thread for this issue that was closed, but when I slow double-click to rename a file it doesn't activate/highlight. More precisely it usually doesn't. Occasionally (and to no pattern I can discern) it works.

I've tried deleting and re-installing, as suggested in the other thread, but it still isn't working. I've added the rename option to the contextual menu in the short term, but hopefully the issue will get cleared up because it's not the ideal way to work.

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for the feedback. Sure, it's on our list. 

    Meanwhile, please confirm, is it still not working in you click way slower than usual? 

    Best Regards,

    No, I tried a number of variations and occasionally it will work, but only very occasionally.

    Thank you!

    I'm having this problem too with the latest build of Path Finder.

    I am also finding that the click to rename feature is not working well in the latest build. I can sometimes get it to work after repeated clicks but often I can't get it to work at all.

    Here's another user that cannot do the slow-click-to-rename. The keypad Enter key works fine, the Command > Rename... works, but not a slow double click.

    I'm running Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6 and Path Finder 8.2.4 (1892)
