ELEMENTS !2: Intermittent ability to rename .jpg file in catalog full screen via "show file properties"

Elements 12 users have either lost or intermittent ability to rename a .jpg file when viewing it full screen in the catalog via right-click and "show file properties." I have used this important feature to quickly view only the .jpg files to pick which companion raw files of the same number to later keep and edit.

Example: Renaming "img_1000.jpg" as "img_1000_boat.jpg" indicates that the companion raw file "img_1000.cr2" is the one to keep and edit. Exiting Elements, I then go to my applicable photo directory re-name the companion raw file as "img_1000_boat.cr2" and return to Elements to edit it.

However, renaming effects seem intermittent in 12. I lost a half hour of re-naming in the catalog, only to find that none of the re-name operations took effect. Then exiting and returning to re-name only one or two files, I found the re-name capability to be only intermittently actually taking effect. This is a step backward from version 10.
