EditMode - Reliability Issues
In add to one of my previous posts (#553 Copy/Paste - Duplicate - Move Weird behavior), I would like to mention 3 new key problems making the daily usage of EditMode a pain.
Purr Data doesn't have an 'edit' indicator in the windows tittle bar like Pure Data when EditMode is turned ON. So each time we have to visit again and again its Edit Menu to check if EditMode is ON or OFF. It's more than boring and not productive at all.
Both in patch and subpatch with Edit Mode = ON, when an object is under either the horizontal or vertical scrolling bar a click at this place on the bars will unfortunately select the object-s for edition. This bad behaviour is leading to enormous and continuous edition errors (known and unknown or known but much-much later when trying to understand what was going wrong).
At least for the top level parent patch there is not protection - advise against unwanted switch to EditMode = ON. An example among others, with a French AZERTY keyboard and Edit Mode = OFF, 'CTRL' + '-' lead directly to add a [dropdown] object when the expected result was to decrease the zoom level. A patch developer can +/- deal with such kind of behaviour but not standard users of your patch. A security mechanism should be added to the top level parent patch asking confirmation from the user before turning ON or not the EditMode.
I'm using Purr Data v.2.10.0 64-bit under GNU/Linux (Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon 64-bit based on Ubuntu 18.04).
I would appreciate a lot if above reliability issues can have a solution. Thank you.
