[squeak-dev] Preference "Always open tools attached to cursor" (was: Default preferences)

Hi Christoph --

Still -1

However, we could make the current preference the default implementation -- which mimics the old MVC days anyway -- and then change the effect of the current preference to not check the interaction method. Then we would not need another preference for this.

Tim? Eliot? Dave? You all remember that place-and-resize interaction from any new window that wants to pop-up in MVC, right?

Maybe give it a shot. If there is too much resistance before the release, we can reconsider.

Hi all,

thanks for the feedback. Based on your responses, I have uploaded the changeset openToolsInHandStrategy.1.cs to the list right now. It gives you a new preference open all tools attached to the hand, regardless of the former interaction mode. Please try it out and give feedback! :-)
