Add "Configure Name" right-click functionality to canvas. This allows a user to change the default name of a workflow (Untitled1) to a new name before saving the workflow (which pops up an annoying rename dialog if the name is still Untitled1).

#1 Updated by Christopher Brooks almost 13 years ago

This is an enhancement, though I understand that some might see the extra
dialog box that is popped up as a bug.

#2 Updated by Derik Barseghian almost 13 years ago

Isn't popping up a Save As dialog when a file has never been saved and still has a default name normal and expected? This is what most programs do, e.g. textedit ms office, etc. What's the benefit here?

#3 Updated by Matt Jones almost 13 years ago

I agree with Derik that we need to normalize this user experience so that saving uses the familiar paradigm. Having to open a separate 'Rename' dialog before saving the KAR is not typical and will be annoying. Somehow need 'Save as..' to generate the name if it isn't already present.

#4 Updated by Aaron Aaron almost 13 years ago

Opening the 'Rename' dialog before saving the KAR is not mandatory.

#5 Updated by Aaron Aaron over 12 years ago

I have added "Rename" menu item to the canvas context menu. This allows the user to rename a workflow without having to go through the save process. Closing this bug.

Does this also fix 4631 (which might have been a dup)?

Quite possibly, can you check?
