I have a form for uploading attachments (PDFs). After uploading them, there is a section (as seen in the image below) allowing you to rename the attachment, view it, or delete it.
The edit icons seem to have usability issues. They are hard to notice due to the high contrast nature of the view button, delete icon, and attachment name.
What I am wondering is if it is better to place the edit icon directly next to that which it edits, or next to the delete icon (to create an actionable area)?
And what objective reasoning is there to support that choice?
