Redmine has poor ergonomic efficiency when we want to update a issue:

starting from the issue list which include the issue you want to update, you need to first open if for showing, then click on update.

An "edit" icon on the issue row should allow direct access to issue update.

#1 Updated by Felix Schäfer over 11 years ago

The first entry in the right-click menu (see RedmineIssueList) is a direct link to an edit pane, does that work for you? I don't think there will be a direct link in the issue list, because there aren't any other "shortcut" links, everything that does something to issues is in the right-click menu.

Ok, so the functionality exists, and it is good!

I don't like that idea that usage is different on different table (for example, project settings -> members lists works in a different way, by having 2 icon on the row, for edit and delete).
I also personally don't like right clicks on web application because people tend to not use them and are not intuitive.

What i think it would be good, and what I would discuss here, is a change proposal:

What do you think if the popup menu is shown by left clicking on a "more..." icon (like the "edit" and "delete" ones you can find in the project settings members)?

if this is going to be a feauture for next releases, ok, else I think it could be easy to write a patch for my personal redmine installation as soon as I will be little better with ruby on rails and redmine patching/plugins (any suggestion?).

+1 for the idea right-click menu should be replaced by something more intuitive, accessible, and cross-browser...
