Fetaure Line level editing

When editing the levels of a Feature Line using the Elevation Editor there is a very annoying problem with the way the Elevation Editor operates after each level edit. The table jumps to the end of the list each time an edit is completed then you have to scroll up to find the next level you wish to edit. Try doing this on a list of 40 or 50 levels which have uneven chainages to 3 decimal places and you will see what I mean. 

It would be a great improvement if the Editor behaved the same as an Excel Spreadsheet, when an edit is completed the cursor drops down to the next cell to be edited.

I find a much easier way to edit feature line elevations is to use the "Quick Elevation Edit" tool. Just click on the feature line and it should be displayed on the ribbon. This allows you to go through each segment and assign elevations or grade in/out
