This is the edited logical volume. Notice the changes from the default. Click OK to close the window and return to the main window.

Default swap logical volume

And this is the edited version. For this logical volume, I edited just the name, leaving the size at the default of about 1 GB. Keep in mind that if you do not change the size of swap here, you can only resize it on a running system from the command line. System-config-lvm, the graphical management tool for LVM, does not allow resizing of the swap partition.
