# Double click to edit, but how to navigate?

We are working on a online dictionary tool, e.g. you have different dictionaries that you can browse.

Now we would like the possibility to in-place-edit the settings by double-clicking on the text. E.g. in the first picture, if you click on the description, the languages, etc. the screen switches into edit mode (picture 2).

The same happens currently if you click on the title (Remy Test), but we also need the option to browse the dictionary, e.g. the title should be a normal link. But then the double-click does not work anymore. We rather don't have a "Browse" link/button, since this is the main function and I think clicking on the title is obvious enough. But then we have this half-backed edit-mode. And we really do like the double-click edit idea too.

Any ideas? I know we could just add an edit button, but....

• Just throwing it out there, but I know I will double-click labels such as that because I want to select a word in the label for Copy-Paste purposes. I would be shocked when double-clicking a label caused the label itself to change out from underneath me. – Anthony Jun 27 '13 at 13:15
• Good point. Didn't think of that. But you see more and more of these in-place-edit controls. You can still select the text, just from the textbox afterwards. – Remy Jun 27 '13 at 13:49

Double clicking to edit something that looks like an <H1> tag is a really unconventional behaviour to use in a browser environment, and to my experience double clicks as a whole are very rarely seen. I could imagine a scenario where a user hysterically double clicks a range of labels just to be annoyed that they don't understand which ones are editable and which are not.
