UI input fields: one click to highlight and overwrite values

Recommended Posts

Here’s a little but important one, in my opinion: If you click an input field in the UI it should highlight the entire current value that’s there so that you can type immediately to overwrite it.


Currently, if you click into an input field, it just sets the cursor in the respective position and you have to either do another double click or even a triple click (depending on the value present) to highlight it, or do more or less complicated keyboard actions to delete the value. This annoys the hell out of me. I want to click once and type a new value.
