When I create new event (using mouse dragging) I got new evnet with title="New Event"
I would like to have easily way to modify title, much more easier than use mouse and open event or click event in main view to make it editable

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. move mouse over main view (month view)
2. press mouse
3. move down
4. release mouse
Actual Results:  
New event with title "New Event" was created

Expected Results:  
create event and open event dialog to set title manually
or
make event editable

Well this is small thing however if you create new event you always have to change predefined title from "New event" to something useful and this suggestion inprove this.
To have predefined title like "New Evnet" is quite strange, because it is useless...

thanks

Changing the title to describe the actual problem, instead of a possible solution.

A different solution (one that I like better so far) is to select the text, so that you can start to type the new title right after creating the event. No need to search a rather complex dialog for the field you want to change.

Summary: open event dialog when create event via mouse dragging → make it easy to change event title after creating the event via mouse dragging

Could you provide more details - I do not get the point...

This patch does what mvl described in comment #1.  After dragging to create a new event, we immediately start editing the title, so the title can be easily changed.

As I mentioned I expect that Edit Event dialog will fire and from/to date will be set instead of editing title "inline" because right now I can modify only title. When Edit dialog is open I can use tab to move to another fields like location and press enter to accept changes.
