Measure Properties should be modal dialog

• Sep 1, 2010 - 02:14
Graphical (UI)
S4 - Minor

1. Right click on an empty part of a measure and choose Measure Properties
2. Switch to the main MuseScore window

MuseScore does not allow you to interact with the score in any way while the Measure Properties dialog is open. Therefore the Measure Properties dialog should be modal (stay on top).

User scenario: I opened the Measure Properties dialog then switched to another application. When I switched back to MuseScore I clicked on the main window in the task bar. I thought MuseScore was broken because it didn't allow any interaction.

Version: Applies to stable and trunk.

(Windows 7)


Changing from "WindowModal" to "NonModal" in Qt Designer addressed the problem although I don't understand why. (Maybe I misunderstand what Qt means by modal?)

fixed in r. 3434 and r. 3435 (trunk and 0.9.6 branch)
