Topic: XML and Forms:Tools:Edit all Javascripts

first, i like the new capability of batching all my ACTIONS for editing offered by 'Edit all Javascripts.' but i have a major gripe, as well. hopefully some of you have found a work-around

here's my gripe: while the generated file allows me to edit EXISTING action snippets that i have written, it does not allow me to work on the XML itself. i know that adobe probably made this a FEATURE to protect us from ourselves but it'd be really cool if they'd allow us to add or delete COMPLETE action nodes such as for blur and set_focus.

as it stands, if we want to add a new blur action, we have to do it through field properties and then selecting the ACTIONS TAB. then a couple more clicks to get to the javascript editor. if you've got, say, five rows with five fields each that's 25 actions to set up -- and about a hundred mouse-clicks too many.

is there a work-around or am i missing something?
