This idea was taken from Arcgis and was suggested by people that do a lot of attributes editing:

  • the user selects a column (as in a normal spredsheet application)
  • then the user selects records/rows
  • then it right click the mouse and a dialog shows
  • in the field place there is the Field Calculator shortcut
  • when open the FC is set to update the selected column and records

What about this

  1. Select Records
  2. Right click a column => context menu => field calculator
  3. Defaults set to selected/chosen column

Less clicks, same behavior.
