How to click feature and modify attributes in smart editor widget?

With the Standard editor widget is possible to click on a feature (ie point) and select from the popup the "modify" option --> open the editor panel -->start with attribute editing

If i use the smart editor widget , this option doesn't appear in the popup... . Why? Maybe we miss some setting?

the workaround seems complicated (close the popup, open the smart editor widget and click feature).and difficult to explain to final users.

Furthermore the content of Smart editor panel doesn't update  if i click another feature on the map

In our experience this behaviour is risky and many user fall in error:

If the smart editor panel  is already open  (for example showing point X attributes ) , and the User navigate the map then click  on another point  (ie Y feature), the smart editor  content doesn't update and remain with feature X attributes: user tipically  doesn't recognize this  and so  he modify attributes in the widget thinking to change Y content , cancelling / modifying the X record..

is there a way to solve this?

Thank you

We discovered that changing the record selection in the attribute table view,   the content (atributes values ) in the  smart editor panel change, reflecring the feature selected.

How to do the same thing clicling on map feature?

Any help from the development team is hightly appreciated.

Thank you
