Option for default edit / selection mode on cells


When a new cell is clicked, the default behavior is the selection/activation of the entire cell. If user types, it overrides previous value. To edit partially, user has to double click and enter a edit mode on existing value.

Requested Feature or general guide to the source code to make such changes:

An option, that allows to change the default behavior from select/override mode to edit mode. As if the user has double clicked the previously inactive row when clicked for the first time.


  • One action and smooth partial copy paste
  • Workflows in which the edition of cell value is more frequent than the replacement
  • Editing workflows with addition and removal of prefixes or partial data

Naive Approach

  • If feature_flag is active, forward the mouse single click event to be handled by mouse double click event.
