Re: File renaming



Right now when I create a new folder it is assigned the name "untitled
folder" and I don't have the option of renaming it right after it was
created. Meaning I have to say "New Folder" and then "Rename" to assign
it the name I want. Is that a bug or a feature?

I remember seeing some bug report about this ...
