User Data: Extended Text Field Window UI issues

Regarding the "pop-up" text windows that one can use for entering extended text, IE: "User Data->Description"

There are several issues with these windows, especially if they are to be used with longer pieces of text, like what one might use for a Description-

1. The text should soft-wrap, and the text area should include a vertical scrollbar if needed.
2. The window could be larger, or, if the user resizes the window, the app should remember this sizing.
3. Clicking on the button to open the extended text window automatically selects all the text in that window, it should not be doing that.
4. The "single line" text field in the panel, should show the extended text starting from the beginning, not the end.
