Edit element locators in Recorder window

I was taking a walkthrough demo of the Silk WebDriver software by automating a simple Gmail login. The buttons which were clicked had dynamic attributes which also got recorded. I know Silk WebDriver wants to be simple but I believe there should be a way to edit the locators of captured elements in the recorder window. Hovering on the element displayed how the element located in a tooltip but there must be a edit option too.

        During recording you can perform a right-click which opens the Silk WebDriver Action Chooser, which has the default action for the underlying object selected. Pick the “ContextClick” action and a right-click will be performed and stored in the script.

        In order to not flood the requests, I believe hover actions (hover over a menu with other elements) is needed. Also context-menu clicks as well.
