Okay, so I'm lame - or maybe it's a fiddly operation to begin with - but half the time I double click a layer name to rename it I get the Layer Styles dialog instead. If the name field can't be made larger and easier to activate, it would be great if I could at least make the name change from within the Layer Styles dialog once I'm in it.
Other means to make layer renaming simpler would also be apprecated.
Other way to rename layer
1. Main menu Layer-Layer Properties...
2. Layer panel fly-out menu Layer Properties...
3. Right click on layer, choose Layer Properties... from popup menu.
4. Alt/option click anywhere on the layer in the layer panel to bring up the layer properties dialog.
Thanks Michael. Not sure if any of those really simplifies the process though.
Maybe instead of making a double click to the vast majority of the layer area open the Layer Style they could devote an equal amout of space to the name. Anything in the vacinity of the name (especially immediately above or below it) would activate the name for renamng, and anything reasonably to the left or right of it for Layer Styles. That seems somewhat fair and simpified to me.
