How to highlight just the name (not the extension) for renaming?

I remember kind of one year ago that when I was renaming a file the default selection was for the name, while the extension where not selected, this way, suppose you have a file.doc, you press F2, type gongigongi and then enter the result was a file named gongigongi.doc, while now it's gongigongi.

Any way to get that feature back?

  • It works fine for me. When I rename it either using F2 or right-click, the extension is preserved. However I recall a couple of occasions when the extension disappeared, it's weird. – user7182 Jan 23 '11 at 21:14
  • I think this is a bug that was recently fixed in Maverick-proposed. All I know is I have suffered from this not working (recently) but now it works again. – Oli Jan 23 '11 at 22:41
  • yes I agree, would you like I delete it or do you think about that? - sorry for overworking you... – ecoologic Jan 23 '11 at 22:45

F2 hightlights only the name when you are not on list view mode. So that, in icon view and compact list, it must work.
