I've been trying to rename layers for organization purposes, I used to be able to do this by double-clicking the layer and it would start the editing dialogue.
Now when I click it sometimes will pop open for like a tenth of a second but not enough time to do anything. I haven't found a workaround.
On iMac. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Sanyam, the issue is a fix issue happening everytime on every doc...
I, too, am having this same problem currently in 16.2.1.
I'm in InDesign's beta testing group. A new version of InDesign should be released soon—16.4. As noted in another thread, renaming the Layers panel fails I think in 16.2 and 16.3. But I found it works in the soon-to-be released version.
Same issue here after upgrading to Big Sur.
My workaround so far has been to re-organise my Workspace. I set up a new one panel by panel and checked, which panels are causing this bug. It seems that only a few Panels like Character, Paragraph, Align, Transform and Gradient can not be combined or grouped with other Style Panels and need to be kept floating or combined in another panel group, but there is no real logic behind this and it may behave differently on another computer.
This bug is quite disturbing and should be fixed.
I have this problem. I AM RUNNING ID 17.0 WITH BIG SUR 11.6
Same issue , i have no idea about using scripts and i am not interested in figuring it out, please fix this bug in the nearest update
