keditbookmarks: renaming folders is confusing

Bug #283412 reported by Alvin on 2008-10-14
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
KDE Base
kdebase (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Bookmark Editor 4.1.2 (Ubuntu 7.10 beta)

Renaming folders with keditbookmarks is confusing.
Select a folder in the left pane, Edit --> Rename (F2) does not do anything, and there is no output in the console either.
Renaming folders when selected in the right pane works, but is difficult (Bug #280709)

Are you selecting a folder from the left pane of the window or from the right pane?
By default, clicking the bookmark folder from the left pane puts its info in the bottom right editing fields.

You are correct. I didn't even try to rename by using the right pane. The description is corrected, because I think I will not be the only one who finds this confusing.
