Screenshot for rename box bug

When renaming an item, a text box appears in place of the file name. The text box is as big as the selected custom font, but the actual font in the box is the system default font.

When you are using a very small custom font, the editing box gets too small. It should either use the custom font in the box, or use the default font for computing the layout of the box.

Besides, I find it odd that I have to use inline rename, I prefer the dialog.

Thanks Christoph, I'll try to fix the font issue until the 4.9 release.

> Besides, I find it odd that I have to use inline rename, I prefer the dialog.

I initially has some quite ambitious plans for the inline-renaming:
- Offer a OK + Cancel button overlay
- Automatically expand the line horizontally so that the "wrapping" in the icons-view does not become an issue.
- Allow scrolling through the view even if you are in the renaming-mode.

However it turned out that this is far more tricky than I thought (mainly due to integrating traditional widgets inside QGraphicsView has some limitiations that are a problem: E.g. the context-menu of the editor would be clipped to the view-boundaries).

Anyhow: Could you please give me more input what you don't like with the inline-renaming? Is it the missing OK/Cancel button (at least I considered this as an issue) or the wrapping? But in the longterm I'd really like to maintain a proper working inline-renaming instead of having the dialog... Thanks!

It is indeed the wrapping that makes longer names harder to edit. The keyboard handling is also odd. For example, pressing "End" moves the cursor to the beginning of the last "line", instead of to the end of the filename.

- Don't lose the focus when an editor-popup is shown
