Description Jesse Glick 2011-08-26 13:18:45 UTC
In design mode, you can edit the name of a mode in a text box and click "Rename Mode". Would be simpler to just rename the mode as you type changes.

(Ideally would replace the mode title in the title bar with a text field so you could edit in place.)
Comment 1 Jaroslav Tulach 2011-08-26 14:04:40 UTC
Type the name, press enter.
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2011-08-26 14:14:42 UTC
This is not obvious, since the focused component is not in a dialog.

Why not simply rename as you type?
Comment 3 Jaroslav Tulach 2011-08-27 07:47:44 UTC
OK. Instant rename seems more user friendly.
Comment 4 Jaroslav Tulach 2011-08-27 07:50:09 UTC

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201108280601* on (upload may still be in progress)
