I hope everyone had a terrific Christmas.

I would really like the Settings window with the title, keywords, header, footer etc to pop out and be more like the one in the old VSD.
1. Black writing on a white back ground
2. Bigger text
3. The ability to turn on global titles, keywords, headers etc. Then turn them off afterwards to tweak them individually
I think the old VSD had a Google analytics window as well that made it so much easier to work with. I also think you are going to need a structured data window in the settings pane

Thanks

I recommend that the design panel have a fixed header to, at a minimum, display the item selected, as I often find myself confused as to what I am editing.
In addition, I would like the default to be to maintain the vertical position of the design panel from selection to selection as we often wish to view/edit the same parameters. I get tired of sliding it down again and again.
A quick button at the top of the slider or some such would allow us to jump to the top of the panel as desired.

Cutting and pasting support can really use improvement via visibility. It is not clear or stable what is selected to be copied/cut/pasted and it is not very clear or controllable where a paste will go. I haven't discovered any group selection options yet. Good dragging visibility would be good.

In all my years using rsd/rff never had a problem cutting & pasting,, select the thing you want to cut,,(check in inspector panel if you are not sure) right click ,, up comes a menue with a selection "CUT" click that,, boom it's cut,,

select the thing where you want it to be pasted (check again in inspector if you want),, right click select "paste from the menu,,, BANG in it goes,,,

Freeway offers a very neat feature 'Edit URL's' ...

This should be a nice addition to RSD/RBB/RFF/RED as well ... adjust or change hyperlinks in your whole project from just one place.

I suggest that the label of the selected item (Column,Row,etc) be kept displayed for selected items to confirm/clarify what is currently selected on the project. Also, as I previously suggested, the selected item, at a minimum, in the right hand menu should be a fixed header and be easier to read , again, to help confirm what is currently selected.

I am sure the guy who wrote this understands perfectly. Unfortunately, very few others will. This is an example of a "blocking" message, one from which most cannot move forward to accomplish what they want to do. Time for some professional human factors help.

When an item is selected it would be helpful to fill the item with a light dot pattern to make the structure more obvious. Several option setting for this feature could be included if you feel they would be helpful.
