    Hi


    Is it possible to rename a file saved on *iPad* ibooks *without* using itunes or the laptop / desktop ?

    I know one can synch to iTunes and open each file to change name etc .... but I am looking at a basic function where you can rename the file on the iPad itself , without using a laptop , desktop or itunes



    TIA

    Press the Edit button, then long press on the name until you get the text cursor.

    Make sure you are in the list view and not the bookshelf view. Hold the Edit button down for a bit, then touch and hold on the PDF title until the magnifying glass pops up.
