Add "Edit QuickFill Rule" to contextual (Control-click) menu for transactions

Sometime when entering a transaction and applying a QuickFill rule, the applied fields aren't what I want or expect, so I'd like to edit the QuickFill Rule. The problem is there's no quick way to get there. While there is a Right/Control-click command to "Save QuickFill Rule", there is no such command for "Edit QuickFill Rule". As a result, the user must:
  • go to Window > Payees & Rules
  • click on the QuickFill Rules tab
  • enter the Payee name in the Search box
  • select the rule to be modified
  • click the Edit icon (or double-click the rule to be modified)
This request is to add "Edit QuickFill Rule" when a transaction is selected and the user presses Control/Right-click to display the pop-up menu of possible actions.

If there are no existing QuickFill rules for the selected Payee, this option would be grayed out in the pop-up menu.

If there is a single existing QuickFill rule for the selected Payee, Quicken should open the Payees & Rules window, in the QuickFill Rules tab, with the existing rule open for editing.

If there are two or more existing QuickFill rules for the selected Payee, Quicken cannot know which rule the user wishes to edit, so it should open the Payees & Rules window, in the QuickFill Rules tab, with the Payee of the transaction found, and the expand triangle open to display the multiple rules; the user would need to simply double-click the one they want to edit.
