    Editing symbol text overrides in the canvas is great. My only request would be that it could be done with a keyboard shortcut, not just double clicking. For non-symbol text, just hitting enter is so much faster.

    Also, hitting enter on a symbol shouldn't prompt to detach it at all. I edit overrides far more often than I ever detach symbols. Simply shifting selection to a child layer upon hitting enter, just like a regular group works now, would be far more useful. Hitting enter on any of the child layers could then trigger editing of its override. In the case of text, it would mean hitting enter would edit the text directly in the canvas. All this, without ever leaving the keyboard (which is where my hands are if I'm editing text).
