Very hard to edit an empty label

If you use a label in your design, and for any reason you empty it (set the text to empty string), then later it’s very hard to set the text to a new value, simply because it’s hard to double click an empty string.

I have not found any workaround from the layers panel either.

I know the best way of doing this is probably to hide the label rather than empty it, but we’re not always smart…

Any tip?

Select the text layer in the layers panel and press Enter.
