Add the 'rename hyperlink' option to the 'edit hyperlink' window. I find it essential to identify hyperlinks by their names. But I often edit them. After I edit a link, and I want to rename it to better identify it, I have to open a new window just to rename it. This is quite inefficient.
In the Hyperlinks panel, with the Name of hyperlink shown highlighted, clicking once more on the highlighted name enables you to ‘rename’ the hyperlink right there.
Hope this helps.

this changes the name of the link, but not the text display of the link in the document, which is what i believe the user above was asking for.

how do you rename the link, but still keep the hyperlink address the same? for example, instead of displaying the entire link for a portfolio page, showing: "My Portfolio" as the text, with a hidden URL linking to the correct destination address?
