Hello there
until today i thought that the rename function of Lightroom just sucked...
Today i watched a J. Kost tutorial regarding this topic, and i realized my Lightroom has missing features.

First off, my lightroom is ORIGINAL, i have LR 4.2 (just to be clear...) and no it s not because i did not update it.
I have LR since version 1, i had all of them, and i never ever had anything different than the rename function i have.

I watched J Kost tutorial and she says LR ships with many templates for renaming a picture (i do not have even 1 - uploading a screen shot)
And i cant even just rename the picture by clicking in the custom text since it is never available.

now when i click on the drop down menu of Custom Settings the only thing i have there is EDIT

and i can do a custom template, and save it as a new template

Anybody knows why my original copy of LR doesnt have any templates?
Plus, why the custom text doesnt work?

Any Help?

thanks
