Is there a shortcut key to the element description?

0 votes

ist there a shortcut key to open the element description editor (in german: Beschreibung)?

When an element is chosen you find "description" under "data" in the properties-tab. Clicking on the outermost right side of the textfield opens the whole description in a small textbox window. Can this textbox window be opened by pressing a single key (or combination of keys)?

Best regards

No, there is no keyboard shortcut to open the multi-line text editor.

If you only want to read the description, you can move the mouse over the node in question and wait for a few seconds. The description will then be displayed in a tooltip.
