How do you change the name of a script library in DDE 8.5.1? [Updated]

The only way I can find to do it is 'in view edit' - that is clicking on the script library name in the list of script libraries so that I can change the name without opening the library.

I can't bring up the old-style properties box for a script library any more and the library name is not editable in the eclipse-style properties.

There is no refactor/rename option on right-click in the 'applications' view as there is in package explorer view in eclipse. Am I missing something or is this the only way?

[Update]
I got an answer in IQJam

You can right-click on the element in the applications view - I swear I looked there and didn't see it before.

If there is another way, I have yet to find it either.

Click on the script library name in the list of script libraries.
Press F2 ...

Or Right-Click the library ( or any other design element ) in the navigation and use the rename option in the context menue.

Michelle,

there is a "rename" menu item in the context-menu of the application menu.

You can although use "F2" - on every selected design element.

Renaming a scribt library (and even agents) doesn't work any more when they are open for editing.
