It would be great to be able to rename a file in Lightroom by editing the current filename. This way a possibly long string would be available for modifications.
If some characters need to be exchanged, a user-specified addition doesn't help, the complete filename is required. Thus the purpose can only be achieved by repeating the name manually, inclusive any desired changes.

You can edit the filename in the Metadata panel but it is one at a time.

Thank you for the hint. That's helpful even if I would prefer the other option.

I think the rename shortcut is the same as Bridge, F2.

It is, but it doesn't allow to edit the existing name.
