How to Change a PR within a work order

Does anyone happen to know a method for being able to change the MRP created Purchase Requisition while in the order?

As part of our routers we create a "External Process" operation with a PP02 control key. With an information record created this will automatically create a purchase requisition for the operation and schedule it.

The problem is that from within the order you can only perform limited changes to the created PR. If you double click on the control key you can get to the requisition information by going to the "Ext Processing" tab. At the bottom of this tab you can directly access the PR itself by clicking on the "Purch. Requisition" button. This takes you into a partially configure ME53N but you cant enter into change mode like you could using a normal ME53N T-code. My users of this requisition need to be able to change several fields before forwarding the request but as of right now they have to exit the order and open the requisition by direct use of the ME52N or ME53N.

Anyone encountered and overcome this?
