Description Patrick Fehr 2009-11-05 14:43:37 UTC
Version:           0.9.2 (using KDE 4.3.2)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

The process of making an annotation is at the moment:

- Press F6
- Press 1
- Click at the place of the annotation
- Rightclick on that new annotation
- Click "Open pop-up note"
- Write annotation
- Click on the X to close the note

This process goes too long and has at least two efficiency gain makers

1. When I make a text annotation "Note [1]" or "Inline Note [2]" and click somewhere, you can be fairly sure that I also want to to enter text there. So why not skip the part with having to rightclick the small annotation symbol and rather directly jump into the input field?

2. Especially the fact that there is no shortcut for closing the annotation input field is very annoying. Why not just implement it with ESC ?

SVN commit 1209674 by aacid:

Fix point #1 of 213258, open the dialog editor just after adding a note, because adding a note without text is probably not what you want to do.
Will be in KDE *4.7*
