issues with sigil 0.8.4

I am having issues with sigil 0.8.4: My system MacBook Air, Yosemite 10.10.2:
I am unable to rename the text sections, the right click option does not work to be able to add semantics, rename etc. Any ideas?
Thanks

Hi,
Are you by any chance either using a mousepad on a laptop or trackpad. If so, to right click use your control key and trackpad click. Or change your trackpad setting to use tap instead of click in MacOS X Preferences. There is some bug in Qt5.4 that relates to right button trackpad/mousepad clicks where it appears and disappears too fast to be seen. By simply changing how you invoke right click on the trackpad/mousepad, you can work around it until the next version of Qt is released.
