|Platform||Debian GNU||OS||Linux||OS Version||(any)|
|Summary||0009303: Ability to rename sources in Sources list has gone missing since update to 7.3 (perhaps one update earlier)|
|Description||When importing a source - or when bouncing a region to "sources list" - it was possible (at least in 6.x-7.1) to later shift+l to view sources list and rename the bounced/imported region by double-clicking it.|
In 7.3 this is not possible anymore. And it is sorely missed when working on large podcast/radio features with large amounts of clips from various field-recordings. Can it please come back in the next update?
|Steps To Reproduce||Import media to sources list - or bounce a region to sources list - shift+L to view sources list, double-click the source you want to rename.|
It used to open a writing-field where one could then type in the new name. Currently it does nothing.
Right-clicking will only give the option to delete source from project.
|Additional Information||This feature is a great selling point for podcast & radio work. It used to be there in previous version, but has gone missing after update.|
Image illustrates how it used to be possible.

This change was intentional. The behavior is now like it was for Ardour 2-4.
Since Ardour 5ish, a single click started an edit operation, and it was not easily possible to drag soruce files from the sidebar to the timeline.
Now an unmodified click starts a drag and to edit the name use "Alt + click".
Ah, OK. I did notice that it took some clicking-around to get to drag sources before.
But, I just tried the Alt+click, and instead of getting what has been described here, I just got to move the whole window of Ardour around. I'm using KDE Trisquel - could it be a KDE-desktop setting that messes it up for me?
Is there a place in Ardour where the key-combo can be changed for this command?
Thanks for taking the time to respond :)
It seems to be, since I can make it work under Windows now.
Any ideas how to do a workaround for KDE? Switch to MATE desktop instead, maybe?
These days most DE on Linux use the "Windows" key (rather than Alt) to access the window-manager functionality.
Perhaps you can configure the KDE to do that?
I'm on Manjaro KDE, Ardour 7.3. My system is configured like x42 is mentioning, the "Windows" key will access window-manager.
ALT-click on a source seems no different from click, however ALT-DOUBLE-click allows me to change the name.
May I ask that this feature becomes available whith RIGHT-click on the source? Currently the only available action then is `remove` while it would be nice if it was working the same way as right-click on a snapshot for example.
||Please disregard the line " ALT-click on a source seems no different from click, however ALT-DOUBLE-click allows me to change the name." from my previous post. ALT-click DOES allow to change the name..|
