Faster way or shortcut to rename things

I am a strong supporter of naming things to what they actually are or do.
So instead of "Sketch 4", "Extrude 23", and "Mate Connector 17", I want to rename them to something that I actually recognize if I open up the file a day later.

And yes, I can rename things in onshape. But it is SOOOO cumbersome to have to right-click, move to "rename" and click repeatedly for every singly thing.

Would it be possible to simply add a shortcut ket that would trigger inline replacement in the lists on the left?

So hover over a feature or part or folder or whatever that can be renamed and hit "r" (or whatever) to rename it.
