<Sorry if this is a double post. I sent it and approved it a couple days 
ago and it still doesn't seem to reflected in group.>

Is there a way to modify a header line in column view other than 
manually navigating to the field?

If I try to use a standard key like S-up I get:
"org-self-insert-command: Text is read-only: "Type `e' to edit property"".

If I try to eval org-priority I get:
org-priority: Text is read-only: "Type `e' to edit property"

Since column is editable, just in a different way, it feels like the 
APIs should still work. Failing that, is there another function I can 
use (so I can write my own wrapper that tries both)?

Thanks,
d

Use S-<left> or S-<right> instead.

That the keybinding for cycling through properties values' from within
the :PROPERTIES: drawer, and since priorities are just special properties,
the column view allows you to cycle through values with the same key.

This is only the case for properties that have a finite set of
possible values you can cycle through.  For others like SCHEDULED,
using C-c C-s will do.

HTH,
