Idea: F2 on WIN to change names

If you want to change the name of a mockup I need to right click it and change the name. On Windows you are used to just press F2 and be able to change the name.
Maybe this could be a little improvement?

Hi @heringsfilet,

There is actually a quicker way to rename your mockup, you can just double-click the name.

Also, the keyboard shortcut for renaming your mockup is: CTRL + ALT + R.
You can find all our shortcuts on this page:

I’ll add a feature request for F2 support. If others would like to see this feature, please let us know (or add your Like/Heart vote above) to help us prioritize this request.

Hope this helps. :wink:


Hi @heringsfilet,

Thanks again for the suggestion. :smile:

We included the F2 keyboard shortcut to rename a mockup in our latest release (3.1.8).

You can get the new version (3.1.8) here:
