Renaming system files in Tracker without mouse not possible

Description

If one wants to rename a system file in Tracker, there is this request dialogue forcing the user to press SHIFT and click the rename button. But what if one doesn't have a mouse attached or it's not working for some reason? I didn't find any way to get this button pressed via keyboard only. In case I missed the correct way, I'd say it's either not obvious enough or not working. At least using TAB doesn't work. In case this is a valid issue, the wording of the dialogue would have to be corrected as well.

BTW, Alt-E, Tab, Shift-Tab, Shift-Space works. ;-)

Ok. I missed a thing. If I press TAB once to focus the Cancel button first, then use SHIFT+TAB the focus toggles between the button. However, without the first SHIFT it's not working. Now I definitely would replace the "click" in the dialogue by something more generic like "press" or the like.

That's exactly what you wrote :D Didn't remember that ALT+E triggers renaming too. Sorry for the noise!

Can this ticket be closed as invalid then?

No, I'd consider it still valid. It's not obvious, nor is it necessary to first press TAB to be able to confirm renaming. Try it out.

In that case, one of the buttons should be set as the default in tab-order. This isn't a problem with Tracker, unless I'm mistaken, then.
