Click in the Info Field.

Type what you want.

Press the Enter key.

Y'know, what Jax said. If that doesn't work then there's a problem somewhere in between SWC and the chair you're sitting on.

I'm guessing you are using IE? IE doesn't like the inline editing, so you will have to temporarily use FireFox to edit it.

Thank you Ellias for the usefull answer ;p

I downloaded firefox.

Problem has been solved.

On a related note: wasn't it possible at one stage, after the move away from IE support, to edit the Infofield of NPCs via the dropdown menu?

So, with the move away from IE, the only way to change the Infofields (NPC & PC) is by downloading another browser?

We're not moving away from IE - Veynom has said that SWC should work properly in IE as well as other browsers.

Then all technical issues related to IE will be fixed by Veynom.

Most of SWC works on IE, but the Infofields stopped working sometime ago (also not seeing the sublight and city travel maps, but that is most likely because ah'm currently using an old laptop with IE6 and just happy that SWC works at all with it)

{EDIT} Just got an iMac today (still waiting to hear back from NEC about the laptop light blowing out after only 3 years) and using the Safari browser, but that also doesn't seem to allow for Infofield editing, just checking that it is only Firefox that allows for the editing

Works fine in Chrome and Chromium as well.

Yeah, i've only ever seen problems with IE, many versions of it as well. I stay well away from anything with a partial apple attributed to it, so don't ask me about safari. I primarily use chrome, and on occasion firefox, so yeah, get yourself a good browser.

There are too many good guys in this galaxy, which is why you have me.

I use Firefox for it's plugins. I am interested in Chrome though. Is there equivalent functionality to NoScript and Adblock Plus, in Chrome?

Adblock is also a chrome extension, and you can selectively turn scripts off in the browser itself. (though there's probably an extension that lets you to it as well)

From what I learned in the little coding I've researched, IE is like the bratty little cousin that has to have special care just to operate like the normal cousins.

The Infofields used to work fine with IE for awhile, but then they stopped working
