    Are you sure you are on your lot? If you are even just the tiniest amount off the edge of the lot, you can't change it.

    Yes I'm sure. I will stand in the exact same spot and reclick a few times to get the menu to change. I am positive I'm inside my lot. But, it's possible I'm right on the line. The only thing on the menu that changes is the option to rename.

    I thought I saw this happen once but I went back and there it was. I'm not crazy after all! (or am I?) But it's definitely not 100% repro....
    We'll need to try to find a way to repro this. Do you have just one vendor? Where is that vendor at if you have the /loc. Do you have a fence or anything around it?
    The time I saw it my vendor was right on the line, at the very edge of the property, so I think it might be related?

    Hey Lexie! I actually have three vendors in different towns but only change the name regularly on two of them. I know I've seen it on both of those vendors. I will start looking at them every single time to find a pattern. In the meantime

    Vendor 1: -6.7, 89.2, 72.6
    Vendor 2: 129.6, 38.0, 56.0 (this is the one I've seen the problem for sure)
    Vendor 3: haven't been there in a few days so don't have location and it's way far

    Vendor 2 is on a small row lot and is outside. It's VERY possible I was standing right on the edge of the property line. So while I CAN change permissions from the edge of the property line, the name change option isn't there.

    Suggestion: either let me be able to change the name from just outside the edge of the property or disable the entire menu from outside the property line. It will eliminate confusion.

    Lexie, after paying attention to this, I'm confident it's not really a bug. The property line of a row lot with the default house is very narrow. While I can change the permission settings on my vendor from outside the property line, I can't change the name. I think that's the deal.

    @Rhiannon I was thinking the same. Thank you for the update and double checking.

    If I keep resolving these issues myself, I'll NEVER get that ant farm... :(

    I just had the same thing happen to me, When I had the arrow up on the screen and double clicked with that it was not working at all but when I was in the character view with the aim icon I double clicked on it and it was there maybe that will help.
