Weird issue: Cannot rename anything using F2 or context menu

Unread postby bvz » Fri Aug 14, 2020 7:55 am

I am running on PopOS 20.04 (a thinly skinned version of Ubuntu 20.04).

I have been running this os for a while but only today (after coming back to a project from several weeks ago) am I finding that I cannot rename anything. If I hit F2 or choose "rename" from the context menu, nothing happens. I do not get any errors (either in the log or in the shell) but I also am not able to rename anything.

I can rename by using the attribute editor, and ix.selection[0].set_name("newname") also works.

Any thoughts on what might be happening? 4.0sp9 (also affects sp7b and sp5b, the only previous versions I have available to me).

Hi,

That's very weird. If it happens with all Clarisse versions on that OS it could be related to the OS. But if I remember correctly other users have successfully used PopOS, or at least they haven't reported this issue.
Are there other keyboard shortcuts or context menu actions that don't work?

Did you try to change the window manager? Maybe it's doing something funky.

I'll try switching window managers tonight. I also have a laptop with PopOS and Clarisse and I will dig that out as well to see what happens there.

The weird thing is that it was working last month (I am fairly sure of that). I will report back once I get a spare moment to test.

THanks

I see this issue relatively frequent on macOS. Switching to another app and then back again usually rectifies it. Ultimately restarting Clarisse will solve it. Obviously not ideal, but I have chosen to live with it until I saw this post.

Cheers,
Thomas

Thanks. I haven't had a chance to go back to this machine and test it yet. Currently on my CentOS machines it is working. I will have to test when I get back to these other systems.
