I use RTC 4.0.3.

Some Work item have customized attributes.

When I open this WI I  can see these attributes and update, but when I list Work item and use the "Toggle edit work item in row' on the right side of the row I can't see these attributes.

Do you know how if there is a specific editor dedicated to display work item details in list ? And if it is possible to customize this editor ?

Thanks very much -))

Hi Philippe,
Have you checked whether these attributes are available also for old work items? It is possible that you forgot to synchronize attributes. Check this: and let us know if that helps

thanks for your help but I checked that point and it doesn't solve my pb.

In fact I don't understand which editor correspond to this display.
Nature & Application attributes are available in selected WI screen

but not when select "toggle edit work item in row' selection

you have to update the presentation(s) for your inline editor,
so as to present your custom attributes.
