Is there a way to edit the comment field/column directly (without right-click/edit, etc.)?

Say, double-click the comment column, enter comment, hit enter - done! Super quick!

If not, is this possible with a script .. or perhaps a new feature? It would be very, very useful.

tagitems() + input() + tagitems() (read the help file) and put that script on a button || user defined command (+keyboard shortcut) || catalog, ...?

Thanks highend.

I got it working with tagitems("cmt",input("Enter Comment:",,tagitems("cmt",))) assigned to a UDC+keyboard shortcut.

This works okay, but a double-click on the field would be faster and more intuitive. :D :whistle:

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction, though!

Custom Event Action: Double Click on Line Number could do I guess.

I remember testing some file manager which allowed slow click on any propertie to edit it directly like you would with file name. Killer feature.

Great suggestion! :appl: Thanks. I changed to using that. One less shortcut key to remember.
