Is there some reason why everyone is trying to do something else

The new behavior is not what we want but what we got when switching to
the new backend. That backend switch was needed for a variety of reasons
(one being that no-one maintained/understood the old one well enough)
and had many other implications beside the above regression.
Is it because no one can remember how it was done, or because people
believe that the new behavior is better somehow?
No, it is because the real solution was not ready in time (and still is
not). AFAIK TB 3.0 will have the same issues (and if not the relevant
changes will probably be included in the next SM 2.0.x minor release
In other words, is the goal to eventually return to the 1.1.xx behavior,
or are we stuck with various less-satisfactory alternatives?
Only for the time being (SM 2.0 at least).
I haven't posted in SM Group for about two years except one exception a
week or two at the request of another party and asking questions -
because I was more or less run off because I answered question in the
point of view on a Mac User. Before I decided to silence myself, I was
Regular contributor all the way back to Netscape Navigator 3.0.1 a Gold.
I breaking from that self imposed silence to make a comment or two about
The first is I won't switch completely switch until QuoteColors is
updated to work with it.
The second I don't know whether is a Bug or an annoyance. I have a
Master Password set. And when the password window comes up its dead I
can not type in Password. I have to cancel it at which time It comes
back this time its active and I can type it in.
And I find each time I switch to a new RC versions, that I have to
cancel it two or more times when I replace one version, with a new version.
And the window in SM 1.x was adjustable in that you could move its
position. on the screen. SM2 It dead center. and can not be repositioned.
I will follow this thread, but comment no more.
