When renaming a widget in the widget hierarchy the user experiencing does not appear to match up with what is expected. After renaming the widget if the user presses the down arrow key it is assumed that the widget below the renamed widget will then become the focus. This is not the case, instead the root of the widget hierarchy is always focused (when pressing up or down) after renaming a widget. (see attached gif)

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open a blank project
  2. Create a new widget blueprint
  3. Add two buttons to the hierarchy (Should be NewWidgetBlueprint > Canvas Panel > Button > Button)
  4. Press F2 on the middle most button
  5. Rename the button
  6. Press Enter
  7. Press the down arrow key

Result: The focus is given to the root of the widget hierarchy
Expected: The Focus would be given to the next widget down in the hierarchy
