Hi,

is it possible to rename quickly a single file without having to call up the  submenu in a cumbersome way?

Thanks!

Is there a shortcut to jump into this field (like F2 for renaming)?

[at least not here...: https://helpx.adobe.com/de/lightroom-classic/help/keyboard-shortcuts.html]

 

By the way: I like the solution e.g. of ACDSee: a dialog box for batch renaming appears only if I have selected several photos.

And it's much easier to insert a sequential numbering, just by using "#" (rhombus):

Unfortunately, no keyboard shortcut to go to that field. The most authoritative list of shortcuts:

Okay, then I have to use Autohotkey – as always in such cases ...

 

Thanks & bye!
