#174323 - Fundamental problem with GUIs
Responding to: Per Westermark's previous message
Per Westermark said:
Any requirements when setting up the project (which may possibly need to be redone if switching to a different tool).

This is a fundamental problem with graphical tool interfaces: there is no way to document the project settings!

I have never seen any graphical tool even attempt to address this!

The only option, as far as I can see, is to take screenshots of each dialogue!
