# [tw] Re: [TW5] Desirable core additions

Adding to what Richard suggests, if you only want your special fields to
appear, you can make a tiddler with $:/tags/ViewTemplate and populate it with:  \define allmine(field) <$list filter="[all[current]has[$field$]]">
$field$: <$edit-text tag="input" field="$field$"/> </$list>
\end
<<allmine myfield>><br/>
<<allmine myfield2>>

Then just add as many <<allmine>> macros as special fields you have. You
can type right into these without the focus problem.

Good luck,
Mark
