Improvement for rename channel dialog box in MAX

Hello

This is a very small issue, albeit an annoying one:

When using <F2> to call a rename dialog in MAX, it would be very intuitive to have the focus on the name field, since this is ultimately the field of interest for the user.

 

Currently, the dialog has no focussed field and pressing <TAB> does not even move focus except to the <Abort> field.

 

So now, I do not only have to change from keyboard to mouse, but also, I have to mark the entire name in the field to change the name. As I tend to give meaningful names to my channels, this makes for a good many time-consuming "mouse/keyboard/move/click and back" journeys

 

If the <TAB> key would at least move focus, this would be equally helpful.

 Thank you

Michael

Hi NI-folk

Apparently the wording 'small issue' has deferred attention to my suggestion. And still renaming of channels is a pest.....

Ok, it's now well into the fourth year this suggestion has not met any interest - not even plain denial.

Sad but so it is
