when entering information for your bom, it would be very handy if you could just click a field and start typing, and use navigation like libreoffice calc for the different fields. of course the mandatory field names should be protected. ATM i need to click a field, go to the edit field on the right, change a value, click another field and repeat. using enter to go to the field below is a great convieniance
