Added to feature requests as I believe there is no current workaround:
Currently we can determine what happens when a list item is clicked. However there are many scenarios when you want to click a small area of a list item to perform a quick action as opposed to presenting a new screen with details displayed. For example, clicking an icon in the list item display rectangle (or maybe even its image) to increment a column value or change a status column value.
So I would see an action for the list item click and another action for the list item “small area” click.
@Antonio does this make sense from a design perspective?
