    I cannot rename anything in iPhoto.

    Any of the events, I double click on that name area and it won't let me type in words.

    If I go into the Photo section, I still can't rename stuff.

    How to fix!? Am I not allowed to rename anything after it is imported?

    I'm on the master account. Please don't say I have to reinstall. :(

    Are you talking about iPhoto or an iPhone? I' gonna assume you're talking about iPhoto in which case try a new user account to see if the problem carries over. Rebuilding the iPhoto library may help too. :)

    Rebuilding didn't help.

    Should I try a reinstall?

    No, you don't need to re-install!

    You can only change the name in the little information box on the bottom left hand corner. If you don't see it, press the i button. Then click on the picture or Roll or Event you'd like to rename. Then go to the information box double click the name or whatever and voila. Do as you like

    Where is the bottom left corner?


    When I double click on an event name, for example halo3+setup, I can't type anything in that area nor can I erase anything.

    I made a small video. Whenever the cursor was over the blank box, I was trying to type.

    Go to the Finder, Go to Macintosh HD, Go to Library, Go to Caches.
    Now look for the folder called com.apple.ATS and drag it to the Trash. The computer will ask you for your password and then restart the computer and all is fixed!

    Sorry, I'm still with iPhoto 06. It looks like you rename things differently in 08.
