Hi Radu,

I see. I admit I had hoped to get around writing a custom Java operation 
but it seems sooner or later I will have to have a look into it anyway. 
I will probably postpone it somewhat but then try the route you have 
suggested. Regarding the in-place attributes editor dialog and the 
attributes view: thanks a lot, I simply did not think of them and the 
in-place editor is just what I wanted.

Thanks a lot for your help.
