Cannot rename prefabs via the Inspector when they are selected in Project View

Scene Management


If you select a prefab in the Project View and attempt to rename it in the Inspector, it will not work. Upon pressing enter the old name appears back in the text field.

1. Open Unity
2. Open the attached project
3. Find the Cub prefab in the Project View and select it
4. Attempt to rename the prefab in the Inspector

Expected Result:
The prefab can be renamed.

Actual Result:
The prefab is not renamed and the old name always appears in the name text field.

Tested on Windows.

Occurs on 2019.1.0f2, 2019.2.0a12

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2019.3):

    The name field is now disabled when a prefab is selected in the Project View
