When I click on any item in the Outliner, and press Up or Down on the keyboard, I expect the selection to move, but nothing happens. Is there any way to enable keyboard navigation of the Outliner? Also, is there a shortcut to rename the currently selected object (like F2 in Windows Explorer)?

What I want to do is rename many objects from Object.001, etc. to informative names quickly.

  • $\begingroup$ Double clicking on a name in the outliner will allow you to edit it. Every name needs to be unique. $\endgroup$ – Dontwalk Jun 10 '16 at 16:41

  • $\begingroup$ Would like to know this too - and just to state this: apparently you cannot navigate nodes in Outliner with arrow up or down keyboard keys; when I press those keys in Outliner in Blender 2.79, it tells me "No more keyframes to jump to in this direction", meaning those keys there are reserved for navigating animation keyframes. I would have hoped there are other keys for navigating Outliner nodes, though... $\endgroup$ – sdaau Dec 8 '17 at 5:06
