#3 easier way to key information when editing multiple files


In the user interface, several fields, particularly in info-list chunk, have direct input and others, most bext chunk, have a secondary window/dialog that pops up, which makes copy/pasting between fields very time consuming and cumbersome. I can see the need to have text box open up in some cases where particular formatting is required, such as coding history, origination time, etc. but otherwise direct entry is easier for selecting and manipulating.

and related...

Some of the fields in the info list chunks are actually just redundant data from the bext chunk or vis-versa. To avoid double keying, if there were a way to link fields, meaning if you enter something in one field, it also populated another with the same data. One good example is the ICMT field which contains the same data as TWO fields in the bext chunk, Description and Originator Reference.
