Navigate to block referenced by ContentReference property


I have a property that references a global block and I would like to navigate to that block in the editor view. This is possible for blocks inside a content area, where you can click Edit in the dropdown. For some reason blocks referenced in ContentReference properties are not displayed in the same way as when they're referenced inside ContentAreas, which is really what I'd like. Does anyone have an idea of how to achieve this?

@Per thanks for the link! Looks way better than the standard behaviour though I still would prefer it to look and behave exactly like blocks do in ContentAreas/Folders

Yeah, it a nice improvement without too much custom code. Keep in mind that the custom functionality might break when upgrading episerver to later version though.
