comment UI Design / Flow - what should “Save” and “Cancel” do?
When it comes to massive data entry tasks, you're definitely right that you want to minimize clicks. I still wonder, though, if the table format is the best way to achieve this. I could see optimizing a form interface by including a button that lets you save the current record and immediately start a new one with a single button click. The advantage of a table is to the see the context of the surrounding rows while editing. If this isn't needed, I think it's still not worth it. Even if it is needed, there may be ways to include some context on the same page as the form.

It sounds like you've given this some thought. I may have oversimplified. Just out of curiosity, can you provide a specific example of something a user might need to do where the table is the better editing tool?

comment How would you display a key equivalent to the user?
@Bobby, I agree about Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V. They work very especially well if you mouse right-handed. That way, you can select some text or objects with one hand while preparing to execute Ctrl-C with your other hand.

comment How would you display a key equivalent to the user?
@Marjan, as I said, keyboard shortcuts are not a critical feature for most users. Some users do prefer keyboard shortcuts. I think keyboard shortcuts should be provided because some users prefer them, and some users need them (for example, because they don't have the ability or motor skills to operate a mouse).

@Marjan, Did you read the article I linked to? It's fascinating how people think keyboard shortcuts are so fast. They feel like they are, but most of the time, they aren't.
