Hi again guys,
I wanted to ask about this again. One way I think you could handle this well in the various table views is how Coda does it, or something similar. The Rich Text field is truncated as a column and does not impact the integrity of the table. However, you have a little “pop out” option that looks like this:
When you click that, you can then access the whole rich text and edit inline. This is super convenient for two reasons:
you can see the whole context of whatever’s written in there by basically just moving the mouse;
and you can importantly edit it without the need to open the entity and block out the entire rest of the table from view.
You guys recently came out with this “pop out” for the Rich Text column, which is a great addition I might add, so it would be very cool to get that in the tables:
This would also give you an feature that’s in Notion as well as Coda - being able to edit inline subtables. While you definitely have the data model superior to both no question, I am missing the practicality of being able to work within a subtable in an entity, since right now you can’t edit any part of the data displayed in the “connections” area of the entity view from a relation. You do have the ability to freely configure what displays there, that is a huge piece and great start. But without the “second half” ability to inline edit, the feature is not quite complete, I think.
As always, would be great to hear from the Fibery team as to what you think about editing inline.
