Bug Description

Currently it takes quite a lot of clicks through various menus and submenus to edit the parameters (invisible, orientation, size...) - that gets tedious pretty quickly.

It would be useful to have all footprint fields on a single page (i.e. not having to press Edit for each one of them). Some basic settings should also be available in the context menu right away, and a hotkey for 'invisible' would be great.

There are already hotkeys for ref, value and footprint edition.
Therefore it is already existing.
