Hi Jaise, thank you for sharing your ideas! (Longer discussions would probably need another platform).
I can see where you are coming from with your concept 1, which is one possible way of doing it, and certainly deserves consideration.
Concept 1 is trying to make 3 different actions available by single-click on a certain subsection of a pill:
- Select (click left corner of pill)
- Edit (click middle part of pill)
- Context menu (click dropdown arrow in right corner of pill)

On the other hand, there's a worthwhile objection from Alessandro, our UX lead (comment #215):

> I'm against adding labels or extra items in the pills unless absolutely necessary as it creates a lot of noise and makes the keyboard accessibility a bit of a nightmare.

So I'm not sure if the benefits of your concept 1 are strong enough to justify the costs.

So far, we're a desktop application, so imo context menu is a well-known and efficient way of accessing contextual functionality.
I've previously advocated for the single-click-to-edit myself, but easy selection of pills looks like an even more important aspect. Consider that editing a pill has easy access with Enter (and F2 on Windows), and it may not be the most frequent action on pills.
Your concept 1 requires a lot of attention for all use patterns because each pill is now divided into three different click targets, also making pills significantly bigger and more noisy.
