Edit row from report

In a sheet's card view there's a shortcut ('Enter') to open edit form for that row. There's no such shortcut or option in standard grid view or a report which is the main working mode for me.

Currently the only option I know of is to click on the row actions button and select 'Edit'. This is a lot of manual clicking considering I'm editing around 20+ rows daily.

Suggestion: create a shortcut that would allow entering edit mode of a row from sheet's grid view or a report's grid view.

Alternate suggestion: make double-clicking row number (i.e. the block of space where the row number is located) to enter edit mode of that row.

    Hi Renars,


    Are you having trouble editing your rows from Grid View?  To edit a row, you don't necessarily need to be in the Edit Row form.  You could edit it directly in the grid, similar to other programs where you click into the cells and edit.  


    This should allow you to not have to click a few extra times; let me know whether this helps.
