Steps to Reproduce:
 Create new text document and display Navigator.
 Insert a shape e. g. a rectangle.
 Insert an image.
 Right click on inserted image > Properties… > Tab Options. The name of the image is displayed in the dialogue.
 Insert new name. Then OK. The new name is displayed in the Navigator. This is OK.
 Right click on inserted shape. The context menu is displayed but there is no entry in order to rename the shape. Expected: Entry in order to rename the shape like it is possible with images.
It's also not possible to rename Text Frames with the context menu.
Works for me with version 5.1.6. Hence regression.

All the changes that were made to context menus were proposed by our design experts, I did nothing on my own. You really should talk to them.

Ok, Thanks for letting me know.
Closing a RESOLVED NOTABUG then...
Although it was a decision by the design team, I don't understand it. I can't find a possibility to rename a shape. If you have a document wih a lot of shapes, it might be useful to name them instead of using Shape1, Shape2, ....
So I would say that's a proposal for an enhancement.

Ok, I agree with you.
Let add the UX team here...
Jay was the driving force behind menu and context menu changes in the last years. I assume it was deleted as it is a not so highly used feature.
Everyone can customize the context menus and add the renaming command by himself/herself.
You can add the Name & Description fields back to the context menu if desired. Removed by default. Duplicate of bug 101193, or bug 96405
Longer term design is implementation of a consolidated dialog for Object-properties (bug 96355)

The control to add is "Name" (as localized). In use it will shows the default name. And if a name had been assigned, the Name... dialog will allow it to be changed.
It works. Thank you!
