Inline editable fields help users to directly jump from read mode to edit mode.
Inline editable fields enable users to edit the data right where they see it. They come handy when the users want to update a field or two without losing context and editing is not the primary intent of the page.
Inline editable input comes with two small action buttons to confirm or discard the changes.
Chips can be used as tags in inputs. Enter/return key is used to input the tags.
Dropdown type does not require explicit save/discard actions, as the result is saved immediately.
Inline editable input comes in 2 sizes - regular and small. On the other hand, inline editable dropdown comes just in the regular size.
