How to rename sensor channel




I have a problem with renaming sensor chanell in PRTG Network Monitor version After a click on particular row in overview table or a click on a button "edit channel setting" in the same table of newly created sensor, field "name" is not editable. It works fine for older version . Can I ask, if there is some other way to rename it or it's a bug?
