Description Sebastian G. <bastik> 2011-02-26 10:41:19 UTC
Current situation:

After one added an field with an input list you click left on the field to select the correct entry form the input list. After you selected an item you have to click OK.

My first action to select an entry was a double left click on the item but it does not work.

Improved situation:
What I would like see is that it still works like above but that one can select any entry by double left clicking it.

Then it will be faster and for me more intuitive.

This is still valid for version 4.2 ( on Windows 7 and probably on all other platforms.

As a non-developer I believe this is a trivial change. Does this tracker make use of keywords like "easy" to point contributors to fixes/enhancements that are (supposedly) easy to implement? (I'm unable to write code, but some can do something about it, even if they are not familiar with the code base.)

This is still valid for version 4.3 ( on Windows 7.
