Sticky Element Properties Tab

Hi,

I've added several extended attributes to task elements and am adding content to those attributes for each task. Every time I click on task the Element Properties window defaults back the Basic tab so I have to click on Extended to see the attributes. Not a big problem but it would save me an extra click if the properties window remembered which tab I had last clicked on and kept that active when I returned to that task.

Dear Justin,

In order to deal with your request, we require a copy of the steps you took which produced the error, and

We look forward to hearing from you

Juan,

version is 3.0.0.022, 64bit on windows 10 Pro.

I don't think this is an error, it is more a request for different UI behaviour.

Steps:

open a new diagram

add a task

right click on task to show properties

click on extended tab

click on add a new extended attribute

select type textarea, enter a name and click ok

click elsewhere in the diagram, off the task

click on the task again

properties tab "basic" is now active, but would be more convenient to have the extended tab selected as that was the active tab when the task was last touched.

Dear Justin,

Our product team has analyzed this question and confirmed not to be a bug.

If an user changes between similar shapes, the selected tab will keep selected but if the user changes between different type of shapes, the tab will also change because the shape does have the same properties.

This question will be analyzed again in a future release.

Regards
