    In previous versions I was able to click on the contents of a field in the Attributes Window and have the entire contents of the field selected ready to be replaced.  This functionality went away in version 10.  I submitted an idea to bring the functionality back, it has been marked as implemented, but it is not.  I would like to be able to click on the contents of a field in the Attributes Window and have the entire contents of the field selected, ready to be replaced.  Very rarely do I modify the existing values, I usually replace the values.  If the field contains a lengthy text value, I have to select the entire contents myself.

    While editing attributes the enter key will move to the next field and select the contents of the field.  But this functionality stops when you hit a date field or a domain field.  You can enter new values in the date and domain field, but hitting enter doesn't let you go beyond that field.

    Thanks.
