Need a short-cut key in model builder for renaming elements

    I spend a lot of time using model builder in ArcMap and regularly rename elements (which you have to do if you want to expose them as parameters). Currently you have to right click on an element to get the pop up menu and select rename to be able to rename the element.

    It would be a real time saver if one could select the element and simply press F2, a short-cut that is employed through the ArcMap application.

    I notice that modelbuilder has no short-cut capability, why is this? Its a standard approach in any Windows application. Not even the great and new ArcGIS Pro has short-cut keys like F2 in its version of modelbuilder.
