    I know it's kind of a nit-pick but the new IDE requires 2 clicks to open the designer where the old one only required a single click. Unless there is more of a menu planed for the "Designer" button (other than "Open Designer"), can this be made to operate with a single click since the only (current) option is to open it anyway?

    A few months ago someone was very angry about the fact that the Designer top menu opens a new dialog and that it breaks Windows standards.
    It is indeed non-standard to open a new window from a top menu so I changed the behavior.

    A button that open the Designer will be nice.

    Here's a suggestion. Right click (or even dbl click) BAL file in "files" window to open it in the designer

    This was almost implemented in v5.00. It will be implemented in the future.

    I know I commented on it, but I can't remember being angry about it. If I appeared that way, I apologize.

    Nice to see it fixed, though.

    the submenu also leaves opportunities open to add additional things in the future so that extra click ain't bad afterall.

    Hi @Erel. Would be nice if you put a little button in B4A 5.2 to open the Designer (instead to click in 2 options of the menu: Designer / Open Designer).

    I remember when Erel added the single click call for the Designer it was strange to me, not used to it.
    Now, that we are used it, it looks strange to need a double click !!!???
    Finaly I prefer the Windows standard.

    The single click in the menu is really strange.
    I am talking about include a button, like "New Project", "Open Project", "Save Project", to open the Designer with a single click in a button (and don't in a menu item).

    Note that you can open existing layouts with a single click from the Files tab.
