Entry editors are used to view and edit the attributes and values of an entry.
There are two editor types available.
Table Entry editor: Displays the entry's attributes and values in a table grid.
LDIF Entry editor: Displays the entry's attributes and values in LDIF format.
By default the single-tab Table Entry editor is used, you could change that setting in the Entry Editor preferences.
Each editor type can be used in single-tab or multi-tab mode.
Single-tab means that only one instance of the editor is used, all entries are opened in the same editor tab.
Multi-tab means that each entry is opened in its own editor tab.
With the open mode you could define how an entry should be opened while navigating through the DIT in the LDAP Browser view.
Traditional: Editors open on single-click, using arrow keys triggers the opening of a new editor.
Application-wide open mode + double-click: Editors open on double-click, using arrow keys requires an explicit enter to open the entry in an editor.
Application-wide open mode + single-click: Editors open on single-click, arrow key and hover behaviour could be configured.
By default the traditional open mode is used, you could change that setting in the Entry Editor preferences.
