I miss the ability to select multiple components and individually edit single cells as in the 2005.x releases. S
howing "Multiple Values" gives me no information at all. I don't know which instance is different, I can't copy and paste a value from a correct cell to an incorrect cell.
It is not specifically clear how "Instance Value" varies from "Value"
Thank you for asking!
I think we should in the future allow editing properties in ICT viewer - for now it only allows to view them. It would solve the first problem you raised without complicating Properties window.
And if we talk about complications in Properties window, I fully agree that the introduction of separate Value and Instance Value columns was a mistake, and I think we should soon merge them to on Value column.
Yes, editing in the ICT could work well if there is also highlighting/selection filtering or sorting so that the selected instances and properties can be referenced.
Sure we should do what you suggest. The direct link from Properties to ICT Viewer is also something worth adding I think, so if you see <multiple values> Properties you are only one click away from seeing the details in ICT Viewer.
Any comment on my original question - what is better, one Properties or mutliple dialogs?
One Properties window is better than multiple windows. Right now you are doing a good job and keeping the window focused on the tasks. Could you insert images to show specifically some of the differences?
