I would find it very useful if the appropriate information box details could be shown while a template is being shift/moused over with the name labels showing. It would be a quick way of checking what I'd used in another part of the plan, without having to bring it to the control and then saving it again.
Sorry if something like this already exists and I've failed to find it!

Hi Keith,

There are two ways to see the template information without transferring it into the control template. Both require some additional clicking, I will see if I can find something faster for the next program update.

1.



If you click on a background template, clicking the top item on its menu, or pressing I (letter i) on the keyboard, will show the information for it. The information window needs to be dismissed before you can continue.



2.



On the storage box, click the info button. Now as you select templates in the box their information will appear in a separate window, and update as you select each one. The selected template is also highlighted on the trackpad. If you switch to the show box list mode in the storage box, after clicking on the list you can run quickly up and down it using the arrow keys on the keyboard, to find a specific template highlighted on the trackpad.

If you have screen space to separate the trackpad and storage box windows as above, you won't lose the storage box from view if you need to click on the trackpad or scroll the template information.

cheers,

Martin.
