Summary0004287: Alias field next to contents
DescriptionMaking parametric designs in FreeCAD is a useful feature. One challenge is to create aliases in the spread sheet. Often while working in other workbenches, I decide to create new values with aliases. Then I open the spreadsheet and I need to click a few times to get to alias setting (right click on cell, alias tab and select field). There is a short cut for alias setting: CTRL+SHIFT+A. However, for that I need to switch to Spreadsheet workbench from current workbench, which also costs some clicks.

How about, we get an alias field right next to contents field (right above the spreadsheet cells and below the toolbars)? There is plenty of space there and 3 most important settings for cells are: content, unit and alias. The styles (colors, alignment and style) don't matter as much as the those. Units can be set by typing it with the numbers: eg: "2mm". Only inaccessible but important field is the "alias".

Steps To ReproduceOpening spreadsheet in any workbench is enough to see missing alias field.
