Editing text in v4

#1 Post by Tomg » 18 Mar 2020, 21:48

DipTrace v4 has some nice usability improvements over v3, and they are much appreciated. One of the improvements is the ability to double-click on a text object to bring up its properties dialog window. A minor change that would make this new feature a little more user-friendly would be to have the [Font Settings...] button expand the text properties dialog window to show the font settings, instead of launching a separate Font Settings dialog window. The current v4 method tends to overpopulate the text editing experience with mouse clicks and windows.

If this change is implemented, the expanded state of the Text Properties dialog window should be remembered. This will help reduce some of the mouse clicks when editing text, with the expanded text properties dialog window possibly looking something like this...
