With ghidra 9.2.1 (2020 dec 15) in a decompiled dll, I can rename a variable with L.

  • Sometimes (can't find a repro), when I rename a second local variable (it does not appear in listing/assembly), the previous rename is cancelled.

  • Sometimes (idem), I can't rename one specific variable at all.

What am I missing ?

    I've encountered similar rename issues multiple times since Ghidra was initially released. I haven't been able to track down a root cause or solution, unfortunately. Point being, I don't think you're missing anything; Ghidra just has rename issues sometimes. Maybe related: github.com/NationalSecurityAgency/ghidra/issues/193 – hairlessbear Jan 20 at 6:33
