Please leave Dialog Boxes to Digital Stone Age and replace them with freely accessible, interactive, resizable and dockable windows – Property inspectors – available for data frame or layer/layers selected in TOC. Advantages:
Uninterrupted workflow – access data frame’s/layer’s properties while working with map.
Changes applied instantly – immediate commit use – OK or Apply buttons are unnecessary.
Multiple layers modification – simultaneously change properties common to selected layers.
Undo/Redo available – currently nearly all changes to layer or data frame are irreversible!
Instant access – property window is always ready when data frame/layer is selected in TOC.
All properties available at once listed in property window.
