Hmm. While that feature is nice, it is a little too easy to rename a layer.
For example, double-clicking the name of a legend layer to bring up
properties (if set in Options) leaves the layer name in an editable state.
Upon closing the properties dialog, any keyboard input changes the layer
name in the legend, because the keyboard focus is still active there.
Maybe ensure the name is not editable when a double-click is detected?
While that would fix the noted issue, it doesn't address how often the
layer's name becomes unintentionally editable during normal legend use.
Any ideas on how to leave the mouse-activated name changing but reduce
