Plan is the only tool which permits interaction with Main Window

Harvey R., UK, 2023/03/16 (YYYY/MM/DD)

Notice that when you switch on Sleep Chart, Tasklist, or Mercy, SuperMemo will NOT let you interact with the main window (element window).

However, with Plan, you are permitted to ineract with the main window (element window).

Is this a bug or an intended behaviour?

Problem 1

With the behaviour above, you would expect that the user is able to save Plan as part of a layout (for example, just like with Statistics and Calendar)...

But, this is NOT the case.

Problem 2

Try the following steps:

  1. Open SuperMemo
  2. Ctrl+P to get Plan
  3. Click on the SuperMemo main window (element window). The focus will not be on the element window
  4. Alt+F4
  5. SuperMemo will close Plan, not the entire application (even though the focus was on the element window)...
    1. It is as if the focus is only visual, rather than functional.
