"Rename" greyed out

#1 "Rename" greyed out

I want to rename a file within my project. In the project tree, I can do a context-click on the filename, and there is indeed a menu item "Rename" (by default assigned to F2 according to what the menu says), but it is greyed out. Behaviour is the same whether or not the file is open in the editor.

Pressing just F2 within the open file simply makes all toolbars disappear. Pressing F2 again makes them re-appear. No renaming.

Thank you for info.

Anyway, you can anytime "rename" file using functin File / Move as. It's alternative to Save as but after moving it deletes original file.

I looked ad functionality. This function is projected for project folder rename.
It never worked for files in project. This is a reason, why is it disabled for files and enabled for folders.

I will change menu item caption
