In ArcGIS Pro 1.4 Project Panel it is not possible to rename Shapefiles (with all it's file-parts) like it was/is possible in ArcCatalog. Please add this feature.
Seems utterly incomprehensible that this functionality does not exist! ArcGIS Pro desperately needs to improve in it's data management. Apparently these are the only things you can rename from the project panel...
Great idea, Flo.
There's an idea for creating an ArcCatalog-like app within ArcGIS Pro. You can view the idea and give it a vote up here, if you wish:
This should be basic functionality of a version 1 product!
I understand people's frustration, and the absurdity of having to ask for this functionality; but the Idea title is misleading. Shape files can still be renamed in ArcGIS Pro, e.g., using Rename—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop , they just can't be renamed using a context menu in the Project pane.
This specific right-click rename experience is implemented in Pro 2.0
