Required some new features in the RDPi RSE Object Table view

1. In the Object Table view need an option to restrict user to change the Member Name, Type and Text as like in the Green Screen by pressing F18 function key opens the Change Defaults from where user can then choose for Change type and text Yes (Y) or No (N). Similar features need in the Table View Preference.

A New check box option ?Change type and text?, on checking the box will allow user to change Name, Type and Text. On uncheck will prevent from changing the Name, Type and Text from the Object Table View.

2. In Object Table having option Export to File in View Menu which currently export the list of Object Table contents in a text file, will good to have an option to export in a CSV file as well.

3. Need a short cut key to open the source in browse mode from the Object Table view. From the object table view after selecting a source on pressing enter key opens the source in replace mode. Also need a hot key (for e.g Ctrl+B) to open the selected member in Browse mode.

Thanks & Regards
