Ability to rename pasted image.png object

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
When I copy and paste an image, such as a screenshot into a page it creates an Image object with a default name of “image.png”. I can right click the block and click open object. From that Image Object screen I cannot rename the object from image.png to somethingmeaningful.png
I am not 100% sure if this is a feature request or a bug that I cannot rename the image object.

Describe the solution you’d like
I would like to be able to rename the Image object after pasting it. Either from the main editor screen or from the Image Object screen.
This would be useful in situations where I might want to refer to the same object in another page for example.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered
I save the screenshot with an external tool as a png file with a meaningful and then upload that manually however that is many more steps/clicks to achieve a simple rename of an image i’m pasting into Anytype.

Additional context
For context this is how I am navigating to the Image object where I would like to rename it.
This is the resulting image.png object that I cannot rename or modify


I also need this, and applies to images, pdf, videos, etc… everything

Yes I have the same request.
For now, in order to change the name of an image file, I have to:
First find or save the file on my device.
Then, rename the image file in the device.
Then upload the, now renamed, image file to anytype. :sweat:
Giving this request a like.
Have a good day.

@Wilberforce Looks like the scope of the below request includes more file formats, you might want to support that one instead. :wink:
