I'm unable to rename a layer in PS CC2020. I was able to in CC2019. I've tried double-clicking on the layer and nothing happens. I then try going to rename layer via the menu Layer/ Rename Layer, where it highlights for a fraction of a second before it goes out again, not giving me a chance to rename. I've tried deleting preferences. Anybody got any ideas?
Hi are you at windows or Mac ?
Heya Lambiloon, sorry mate on windows 10...
Any updates on that? I can't rename my layers either, so annoying
Point mouse directly over current name and double click.
Sorry for the late reply. I ended up doing a fresh install which
worked..... Until Creative Cloud and Photoshop updated yesterday and now it
no longer works....
Have look below at a reply from Stephen A Marsh... It works for me.... 😄
I found a way around it while they fix it. I duplicate the layer and rename the copy, double work, but at least it gets renamed 😞
Menu Layer-> Rename Layer, tried it?
That didn't work. The nae is highlighted for a fraction of a second then nothing....
Or this script from a post back in 2017:
// https://forums.adobe.com/message/9693161#9693161 #target photoshop var doc = activeDocument; var pmt = prompt ('Type a new layer name', doc.activeLayer.name, 'Rename Layer'); doc.activeLayer.name = pmt;
I've just done that, gave it a keyboard shortcut and now it's a single keypress on my macro keyboard. I really appreciate that.... 😄
Just go to the LAYERS menu on the top of PS window,
(having the needed layer "chosen"),
and you will see the RENAME option in the drop menu... press it
