I find it somehow confusing, that when I edit something through inplace editor, the status of object (for example attribute) changes even when the text/value was not changed. And if I cannot change something through inplace editor , I must EDIT it with “edit” button, but because of that status, edit is not possible. Everything is grayed out.
I think the status should not change if the value is not changed through inplace editor.
And I think it should be possible to edit attributes even when the name, label has changed.
I may change multiple values through inplace editor one after one without touching apply between, but I cannot combine it with edit through “edit” link. But it’s edit as edit. No difference.
The same and more confusing is when adding new attribute.
You click on add, new attribute is inserted with common name.
Then you have two choices:
- click on inplace editor
- open editor through “edit”.
Again, choice 1 means does not create any problems, but
choice 2 throws message box that the entity must be saved first. What for ?
In TDM2 it was possible to add entities through EDIT dialog box completely, before saving.
