For some reason the name text field doesn't appear for vertex groups in blender 2.70. I tried in 2.69 and it's there and works fine. Was this feature removed in 2.70 or am I missing something?

I was having the same problem until I found this post. A double-LMB does not work for me. Ctrl+LMB does work, and I can certainly live with that. I have run into the double-click problem before, however. That case was with "The Room." That turned out to be caused by a developer-affirmed problem. The program was ported to Windows from Mac, and it did not use the operating system to distinguish a double-click from two single-clicks. I should have noted that, as we get older (I'm 76), often our reaction time gets slower. That lengthens the time between the clicks of a double-click. – user10881 Jan 9 '15 at 16:31

Ctrl LMB LMB click, or double LMB LMB click on the name of the vertex group. That is now how to rename anything in that type of list.

Double click also works. – Fweeb May 2 '14 at 15:26
Triple click works, double click don't work. – Paul Gonet Nov 6 '14 at 17:44
@Gonzou what system and mouse are you using, because double click does work for me. – David Nov 6 '14 at 17:45
@David, you're right. I checked the tooltip and it says: 'double click to rename'. But in my case it's not working. I use Windows 7 and the standard mouse. Any ideas what is wrong? – Paul Gonet Nov 6 '14 at 17:58
@Gonzou I do not know what is wrong. You could ask a new question. – David Nov 6 '14 at 18:05
