I'd like to be able to edit a footprint for a part in my design without needing to find the footprint filepath and directly open that file in PCB Editor. I see that I can view footprints from Capture, and that doing so shows me the footprint path, but I can't find any way to launch the editor. Is there any way to go directly from a part in a Capture schematic or a placed part in a PCB Editor board design to editing that part's footprint?
Not possible to do this. It is a good idea though.
The PCB footprints are basically totally separate from Capture so one has to directly go to where they are on your drive to edit them.
