Rename with F2 - Pgup/pgdn silently discard

Post by *Thany » 2018-08-18, 19:20 UTC

Running TC 9.21 on Windows 10.
When renaming a file with F2, pressing Pgdn or Pgup will end renaming and discard the edit that was being made. These keys are easily pressed by mistake because they are next to Home&End, which I use quite often.

It should either apply the rename, like the Up&Down arrow keys do, or go to the start or end of the edit field like Home&End.

When renaming a file with F2
You cannot rename with F2 unless you have remapped F2 from its original function: Reread source window

You should change the title of this subject to: "Rename with Shift+F6 - Pgup/pgdn silently discard"

Aha, and what should happen if you accidentally hit the delete key?
This is also right next to the "End" button.

I don't consider this as a bug, but I will treat it as a feature request.
