Unless I misunderstand, you get the same set of fields in single-line and multi-line modes. I like single-line mode usually. What I'd really like is to NOT have to have all my seldom-used fields (add note, delete, start date, repeat) show up in the single-line view, but be able to separately enable them in multi-line only.
Actually what I'd really like even more than that would be a right-click menu, or a single drop-down at the end of single-line view, that would enable me to delete, add a note, set a start date or repeat, etc. without taking up a column. As it is now it's too wide to fit my browser on most monitors.
ps: Quicksearch is the greatest! When did that show up??
