In the attribute table, when we "single-click" to edit a "NULL" cell, the "NULL" text is not in "selected" stage, ( which is unlike in the pop-up feature-info tool, which is kinda more convenient because the "NULL" is already selected so that you can just "type right away",) you end up with having to double click the cell to override unselected "NULL".

I guess the intention of this behaviour is to protect data in non-NULL cells.

On the contrary, when you want to edit NULL cells, you just want to truncate the NULL with your data anyway. There is no data to protect in this case.

So I guess if single-click on NULL cells, then the "NULL" text is already selected. It would be a bit more convenient for data entry.

Thank you.
