Mac Editor: Can't rename folders in Content Browser

I’m preeeetty sure this is a bug of some sort.

Once a folder is created in the Content Browser, it’s impossible to rename it. The Rename menu item in the contextual menu is always disabled, and none of the other usual tricks (double-clicking etc) seem to work.

  • 4.4.2 binary
  • OS X 10.9.4

Hey swillits,

Thanks for the report! I can confirm that this is not working properly in 4.4, but it is already fixed in our internal build and should appear in 4.5.

Thanks for the heads-up.

I am running 4.11.2 and it is not working.

I can confirm that right-clicking and choosing to rename the folder is not working in the Content Browser. -This has been reported as JIRA UE-30134 and is being tracked in the following AnswerHub post:

[Cannot Rename Folders with Unreal Engine 4.11.2][1]

However, as a workaround, you can press F2 to rename the folder or alternatively, you can change the folder name in the Content Viewer panel to the right as shown here:


Please make sure your game is stopped. -That was my issue.
