About a month ago I made the switch from blender 2.8x to 3.1 but I've noticed that double clicking an item in the Outliner no longer brings up the renaming bubble, so in order to rename something I HAVE to press f2 every time.

Up until now I have just been dealing with it, but now I have an old project that I'm updating and I have a whole human rig, fingers and all that needs manual renaming.

Even so, having to press f2 to rename things in the outliner nearly triples the time it takes me to manually rename things!

I have tried to use the batch rename function, but no matter what option I pick it just wont work for bones, despite there being an option under "type" for bones. This option wont even select!

Is there any way to make it so you can double-click rename again? This problem only seems to apply to the outliner.

I am using Windows 10 Home
