Renaming without Filename Extension
« on: August 27, 2017, 15:30:27 »
When attempting to rename a file and need to select the last word in the filename with double click, the word will be selected together with the filename extension. This is not good. Better is a dialog box with separate fields for filename and extension, or a better separation of filename and extension in the direct rename field.

If you are doing inline rename, you can press Ctrl+E to select the extension part
Dialog during inline rename is bad.  It breaks many of the other quick rename features. Like using Arrow up/down to enter ext/prev item for rename
