Bug Description

Edit Symbol Fields interface is very useful: I use it to consolidate the BOM, footprint, manufacturer reference, etc.
In this task, I copy/paste a lot of data from datasheet, parts finder going to cells of this Edit Symbol Fields.
Unfortunately, in order to copy or paste data in cell, one must enter edition mode: double click, then you can copy/paste.

Could you enable the copy/paste without entering edition mode, by simply selecting the cell (à la Libreoffice Calc way)
Of course, copy data from would be nice too and avoid double click.

Thanks!
