Nope; as I mentioned in the Projects discussion - to the horror of many, it seems - I just don’t use projects.

Just the usual select a package/repository, ‘save’, edit the description, pick a couple of items to ignore ( because they need to not be released just yet) and ‘save’. After a little progress indication, boom 'This modal dialog was interrupted, please close it’ in MCTool>>answer:.

I *think* closing the MC browser does something helpful, though I’ve banged on enough windows and dialogs whilst trying to get through this  that I can’t really be sure. One question worth  considering is whether the MCTools way of trying to be modal is the proper way to do it.
