PHOTOSHOP CC 2015 - Renaming layers, paths, and channels in the palette is significantly more difficult than in previous versions.

In Photoshop 2015.1.1 It is more difficult than it was in previous versions to change the name of a layer in your layers palette. Before i could double click the name and it would be prepared to change. In the current version if i double click the name it appears to be ready to edit but in reality i need to click it 1 or 2 more times in order for it to be high lighted blue and be ready to edit. This has substantially slowed down my workflow. I would really like to see the feature of renaming layers (as well as paths and channels) return to the old double-click and type method.

Thank you

Hi John,

Can you tell me more about the problem that you're encountering?  I cannot seem to reproduce it on either Windows or Mac using both the latest and the previously-released version of Photoshop.

What OS are you running?  What kind of mouse or pointing device are you using?  When you double-click on a layer OTHER than Background, what do you see?  Can you not just type in a new name?
