Dawn - I goofed - the whole panel isn't removed. It's reduced to only have the More Info prefs - the radio choice for Full vs Quick is removed.

Dawn Phillips

OK. Please review the revert and fix:

That's great, we should fix it while we are here though... The description describes the More Info pane, but this is supposed to be the preference.

"Controls whether the Configuration Editor shows the rightmost More Info panel when opened. If you manually open the More Info pane using the menu, it will remain in whatever state you leave it during your session. The preference you set here is what state it will return to whenever you restart the harness."

Rewrite as needed.

Thanks!

Actually, I don't think it properly represents what this does. The more info isn't really enabled/disabled, it's just shown or not at any point in time.

This setting simply defines whether it will be shown or not shown when the configuration editor is first started in a session of the harness (hence the fact that it doesn't take effect till you restart).

I think the last sentence is wrong - "...More Info pane status is returned to its last known state." Don't believe we save this state - the visibility of More Info is completely dependent on the rule in the paragraph above.

So, I think rewriting the explanation of what checked and unchecked, and changing the words "enabled/disabled" to "shown/not shown".

One more time...
