Modal or modeless Selector Editor


#1

Dear Studio users,

We are working on some enhancements to Selector Editor and we wanted to ask your opinion when it comes to Modal vs. Modeless (Non-modal) windows. More details on the difference here

The question pertains to Selector Editor window. Currently the behavior of this window is modal. Do you have any preference?

  • Modal
  • Non-modal / Modeless

I lean toward Modeless usually, so I can look at information while the editor is open to reference other parts of the workflow. But, I haven’t had a big issue with the current modal behavior either.

Thanks.


#3

I agree with Clayton. I almost always prefer modeless, but can deal with it either way


#4

Added a poll so we can track results better. Vote away!


#6

Poll is good, but please also comment. We also want to understand why each option is better.


#7

Modeless, same as Clayton said - being able to lookup other parts is useful while editing.


#8

I can’t see any advantages from having modal windows, so I’d prefer non-modal.

To the people that voted for a Modal editor, could you tell us the reasons for your choice? I only see reasons posted for making it non-modal.
