would it be possible to have the session non-modal, so that one could go back to file-handling without loosing the session's output etc...
Would be a big time-saver for me ;)
Hm. I can consider this. But it is not easy thing to do. Also note that the window is closely connected to panels. If you change path in the window (using cd command), the path changes in panel too. What if you were copying the files at the time?Sorry for being not clear: I was referring to the terminal-window you open with Ctrl+T
Then you can use "Open in PuTTY".Hmm, the way I use it most often I don't make use of that coupling-feature. So if modal or not was an option, it would be ok if "non-modal" would also mean "independent of panel"...
While you are right, changing this is very difficult. As only 2% of users use this feature and most of them are probably not limited by the modal dialog, I do not think it pays off reimplementing it.Ideally dialog boxes should only be modal, if they cannot be modeless. The rule of thumb is to keep them modeless unless it's mandatory for the user to complete using the dialog and close it before the user can continue using the program that created the dialog.
In this case, nothing in the Console dialog makes it mandatory to be closed first before I can use the main window. I should be able to use both windows at the same time. (Also, I don't see the said behavior of "current directory synchronization" happening. I executed "cd.." and the main window's directory didn't even change.)
