Suggestion: F2 to rename layer

Go to solution Solved by midora,

When using paint.net, i've sometimes found it inconvenient to click the settings icon to rename a layer, so here is my suggestion:


When pressing F2 on a selected layer, pop up the layer settings window. Because the text in the popup is auto-selected, nothing more has to happen.

I don't know how much time and effort there has to go into this to make it work, even though it doesn't seem to be that hard from a users-perspective.


This is a small suggestion, and i don't absolutely need it now. No need to prioritize this.

Also.... double-click on the layer name in the Layers Window!


PRO-TIP: You don't need to select the layer name to type in something new as the text box will have the focus. Just start typing when the dialog opens ;)
