    Attribute Editor: keyboard shortcuts? ER: semantic UI

    The attribute editor appears to be a carpal-tunnel-inducing mouse-only affair. Am I missing something? I would hope, at the least, that:

    a) the attribute editors could be activated with a keystroke/keystroke combination
    b) the attributes could be filtered by keystroke (e.g.: typing "da" reduces the selections to those that have a "da" -- without the quotes in both cases, of course -- in them.

    Extending b) would be a semantic UI in which

    c) a textbox at the top shows the matches in a dropdown; selecting one pops up the editing box for that attribute directly there, so no navigation is ever needed. This is actually a baby-semantic UI, but it's good enough for what we are doing.

    The rationale: as developers we want to not be distracted from our work by, e.g., mousing around. Thankfully, Lianja doesn't require typing the whole thing out in code. Adding a semantic UI or even getting close (as in B) increases time-directly-on-task dramatically.

    thanks,

    Hank

    Not a bad idea. We will take a look at this after v1.0. Our primary goal at the moment is to try not to diversify our efforts away from our overall project plan as described in the roadmap.
