It is difficult to edit several styles at once in the Edit Highlight Styles dialog.  When I make some changes to one style and then click on another item, I expect it to retain the changes that I just made, but it is losing them. 

 

Go into Edit Highlight Styles and change the name, color, intensity, shape, or pattern of the first item.  Then click on the second item in the list.  Now select the first item again.  The changes that you made are lost.  The only way around this is to click Up/Down to commit the changes before editing another one.

Hi Darin,

 

If you click 'Ok' after you have edited your Highlights, that will save your changes.  This is just to make sure that you have saved the changes you made. Like you mentioned, you can also move your Highlight 'Up' or 'Down' to save your changes.

Yes, the OK button saves all pending changes.  The problem is that I can't add pending changes for several items unless I click Down/Up. When I make changes to one item, and then select another item, I expect it to add the settings for the current item to the pending changes before displaying the settings for the next item. Down/Up does not save the changes; it adds them to the list of pending changes, and that is what I want to happen when I select another item in the list. Also note that Cancel discards all pending changes for the whole dialog session, which is what I expect.

 

Here is a use case.  I have a highlight file with eighteen highlight styles.  I want to adjust the shape property for each one, so I open Define Highlight Styles and go through the list, changing each shape. When I click OK, I expect all eighteen changes to be saved, but, much to my surprise, only the last one is saved.

This is still happening on 10.4.3.2 (on the Mac, at least).  I ran into it today, when I needed to change the shape of all the highlight styles in the Sources file available from the Exchange.  I didn't know about the Up/Down buttons helping.  But this still seems like a bug, or at the very least unintuitive.
