Description

I have a suggestion to a small behaviour change in the GUI.

Currently, clicking on items in the overview tab will open up the edit dialogue for that item. It would probably be better if the item property screen would be displayed instead when clicking on it. The edit dialogue should appear when shift-clicking the same way as in other displays.

There are many links on the right hand side and all of them goes into edit mode, and all of them should be changed.

There is a reason for this. The view pages will replace the overview page since they don't open in popup windows. And since the overview is mainly built by javascript it will not always work to go back again. This probably depends on the browser and may have changed with newer versions. I can try changing the links but it may not be possible to have the option to return to exact same overview state as it was before the link was clicked.

There is a historical reason for it also. When the overview only existed for experiments the primary use was to find and fix errors/warnings and it made sense to always open the edit dialog. This has probably changed now that the overview is available everywhere and that it may be used also for navigation. So I think it is a good if the links behave as all other links (eg. go to the view page and use SHIFT/CTRL+click for edit).
