Apparenlty I can't rename sequences. Clicking, right clicking and going to "rename." Doesn't work allow me to rename a sequence.

It apparently happens on some projects but not all projects. No idea. Both projects were upgraded. Additionally, Media Encoder has been crashing on export and Premiere Exporting is taking 3X as long.
Change your Editing Layout using one of the presets/layouts above, then try renaming. This happens to me quite often where I notice not only can I no longer rename things, but certain commands stop working, like "reveal in project panel", etc. Once I switch to a different layout, it sort of resets things, I can rename, then go back to the other layout and I can once again rename things just like before. All that to say, switch to a different layout or 2, then go back to your layout and try again.
Thanks, this worked for me. Was having the same issue. Hopefully they fix this bug.
THANK YOU! You solved this renaming issue for me too. Amazing -- second Google result leads to a current and useful solution, lol.
Thanks for the help, that also worked for me. I just upgraded hoping it'd solve the issue in the previous version of Premiere only to have it happen again in 2020.
Thank you. Had this same problem, and the fix worked. Only issue is the name still doesn't update in the sequence panel unless I close the panel and reopen.
The same problem and workarund is still confirmed after the latest update. It's a bug, Adobe please fix it.
It happened when I started to work on a project provided by a colleague. Right click and rename does nothing in the project panel. After changeing the workspace to something else, then back to the workspace provided in the file, the rename did work.
Are you trying to rename in the Project panel or say in a Timeline panel?
Project panel. I havne't gone back into that particular project in order to trouble shoot this issue any further. It was simply odd that it was happening on one project but not another. Appeared to be a bug - and the reponse higher up the thread suggesting changing/toggling layouts might be a work around. I'll have to give it a try.
Changing to a different Workspace and the selecting "Reset to Saved Layout" fixed it for me.
Looks like some kind of problem created by the recent update when opening an existing project.
This is why when upgrading the Premiere version, it's recommended to dump all cache/media-cache files before working in the new version. It seems to avoid some of these issues better.
Why don't Adobe stop making buggie software???? I'm sick of solving problems, loosing lot of time searching in forums instead of working. Who will pay me the hours I spend solving issues? Going to Davinci Resolve in the next project.
2 Year old bug and typical crickets from Adobe. Thank you to users that posted and said to change the layout, that worked. The minute I find an alternative to Adobe Premiere, I'm gone, so tired of spending more time waiting and workarounds.
+1 for chadgwild's solution of changing your editing layout. I'm on PC running windows 10 and that just worked for me. Thank you!!
