KM Editor UI: Double Click Behaviour on Action Titles

Is it just me or does anyone else find themselves trying to rename an action in their macros by double-clicking on its title only to have the action collapsing instead? There's already a disclosure triangle to the left of the name that allows us to collapse it.

Hi @karlfranz - yes, to my constant irritation I do it frequently!!

I have a solution, but I'm cheating. I use BTT to trigger the Actions > Rename… menu command.

You could do the same thing with KM itself, though. Just pick a trigger.

I ended up setting a lot of these actions as buttons in my Stream Deck, makes it so much easier when I’m editing my macros!


Aha! So it's not just me!

How meta. It's like Inception. :slight_smile:

Personally I'd hate to have to hit that small target to collapse/expand an action.

You could also use the System Keyboard Preferences to assign R to: Actions > Rename...

I do this when I want to be able to see the keyboard shortcut in the app menu structure.

I've been very happy since I assigned a keyboard shortcut to rename a few years ago, and I couldn't believe I hadn't done it sooner.
