I installed kde 4.9, the new dolphin has the *new* online rename, in
many cases it is useful and beautiful, but in my case when I have long
names is very better the old way, in the old way you can enlarge with
one click on the bar the window with the name and see all the name, with
the online you cant, so, how can I come back to the not online rename??

While I ran all four 4.9 prereleases and now have 4.9.0 installed, I
don't use dolphin enough to even really know the difference between its
old way and the traditional inline rename.  Neither do I see a way to get

the difference are that now you edit the new name directly on the name showed in dolphin window, before a dedicated window was opened to do this, I use dolphin expecially for the filter facility, it's fantastic:-))

back the old behavior, except perhaps to grab the diff, create a patch
reverting just that change, and apply it to a dolphin rebuild.  Not too
terrible on gentoo and I've done it myself with a patch here or there
over the years, but significantly harder on the ordinary binary distro,
whose users are less used to building from sources and who don't have
gentoo's automated approach that makes it so easy to start from, so it's
significantly more difficult for them.

too difficult for me:-))

But, I do know there's several alternatives to the inline rename.

1) Select file properties, and do the rename in the resulting window,
which can be resized.  (Note that file properties has a configurable
hotkey, too.)

thank you, this is the only workaround that my sister can perform:-))
often pc's are used by people that haven't skills about it :-))
so it should be better to have the way to come back :-)

6) Use open-with to open the directory in konqueror, gwenview, or some
other GUI-based file manager, and handle it there.

konqueror also have the same behaviour of dolphin
