Text entry error when naming Adobe CC library items
First of all, great to see CC libraries getting some love with the addition of groups. I'd love to see further refinements, as I use CC libraries for all projects.
One issue I'm having with V23.01 on a Mac (Mojave V10.14.3) is with naming CC library items I've just dragged into the Libraries panel. The behavior I'd expect to see would be for the new item's name field to get keyboard focus, allowing me to immediately type in the name of the item I'd just added.
Currently, the item gets a default name (e.g. "Artwork 1," "Artwork 2," etc.). If I immediately double-click the newly dragged item to name it, the default name gets focus, and I'm able to start typing my new name. Unfortunately, after three characters or so, the characters I've typed delete, and the field loses focus, requiring me to double-click the field and re-type (which usually works the second time).

I have noticed the same problem. Windows 10 Illustrator V23.0.3.
I think it is trying to load the object while the name is being typed and then once the object is fully loaded, it clears out any entry made to that point. A fix is wait until naming until the object has fully loaded showing the image in the library.
1. Enter rename mode for asset within the CC Libraries panel
2. Attempt to rename asset
3. Text field appears limited to 1-3 characters.
4. As text is entered into the field, each character deletes and replaces the previous (ie overtype mode).
This issue started after updating to 23.0.2
This occurs only randomly and only inside of CC Libraries Illustrator. My keyboard or OS settings can be ruled out as a cause.
