I recently installed LR 5 on my iMac ( OS 10.12 Sierra) and cannot find the Renaming function during import of photos. Both the File Handling and Apply During Import functions are visible. I tried installing LR 5 again but no change. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

First - make sure you are set to Copy or Copy as DNG at the top center of the dialog as those are the only two options that allow renaming. 

Then, if renaming still does not appear: Right-click on the "Apply During Import" panel section header and make sure that Renaming is checked.

That worked; along with changing my mouse to a conventional 2 button type. I was able to right click on "Apply During Import" and it appeared. Thanks so much!
