Make individual tasks within the agenda/timeline pane editable

Currently, it appears that while you can use an agenda pane to move items to a new place in the outline, you can't edit the text of individual items.

Also, while there is yellow highlighting and automatic scroll *if* the item is expanded within the outline, it can be difficult to navigate to the item in an outline to the left of the agenda matches the item in the agenda. This makes not being able to edit tasks within the agenda that much more problematic.

    If you have a complex list, or are using the mobile app, this is even more problematic. Huge mobile use case: mark item as complete, see what is next to do.

    Current task flow: view "today" section of agenda, tap to "open" an item in outline, know to tap on right edge to bring up mark-complete, tap checkbox to complete, tap agenda button to return to agenda view, scroll back to wherever you were in the list because it never seems to come to the same spot, figure out what to do next.

    Preferred flow: tap item, tap mark-complete action.

    In preferred flow scenario, the task of "view this item in outline context" would have two paths - you now have a highlighted item state, so always tapping the outline icon would take you to the highlighted item location. Second, in the item actions, there would be an explicit "view in outline" action.

    Current flow puts too much prioritization on the top of the outline, which is only rarely where I am actually working (and if it is, I know my OS's scroll-to-top control)
