U4-341 - Data types cannot be renamed

Created by Sebastiaan Janssen 19 Aug 2012, 14:51:20 Updated by Al Nicholl 27 May 2015, 13:20:26

In the developer section in Umbraco, if you add a data type and misspell the name, you cannot change the name afterwards. Sure, it wil be changed in the Edit datatype form to the right, but the change here will not take effect on the name in the tree or the name you see in the content or settings sections in umbraco (reloading doesn't help). I discovered this problem in Umbraco 4.5.2

I don't recall coming across this problem, and see a comment on this back from August 2011 saying this was fixed... Can this issue be marked resolved/closed?
