Reply to: Make attributes editable withing document content?

Thanks, Derek. I'll look those over for ideas. To give some background, the reason I'm looking into this is because we have some cases where users have to type in values (as opposed to selecting from a list) for several attributes. Most of the time, the attribute inspector is great. Attributes usually aren't modified, so they're hidden until they're needed. But when there are a lot of attributes to modify, using the attribute inspector isn't ideal… it's just a lot of switching back and forth between placing your cursor in the right spot in the document, then switching to the attribute inspector to find the attribute and enter/modify its value. Some people try switching to plain-text view, but become frustrated with that for other reasons.
