|0003643||Arch||Feature||public||2018-10-19 13:50||2018-10-22 18:20|
|Target Version||0.18||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003643: Add' button in Arch section does nothing for an empty selection|
|Description||Double click on arch. section open a dialog to add and remove object into section. To add objects it expects user to select something and then press 'add'.|
It was really, really confusing for me, I thought it was broken, until I found that I need to select some objects beforehand.
My proposal is to add some notification (f.e. popup 'No object was selected to add') or to disable button with tooltip saying that 'Select an object and press add').
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Create arch. section|
2. Double click on it in tree view
3. Click 'add'
a) Add is inactive before something was selected
b) or there is a message that 'nothing was added because selection is empty'
|Additional Information||I know, it sound as a minor issue for an experienced user, but for a beginner is was a major blocker.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|

Indeed, the same problem also exists with other Arch objects, although there the button stays greyed out if no object is selected, which helps.
The best is of course for all these cases to allow the user to pick an object if none is selected when pressing the add button. I'll add that ASAP
Note to self - also, grey out the "remove" button if none is selected in the above list, and pre-select a default category to add to in std arch components
