has been done, except for one thing. On virtually *every* Windows
application I've written that has popups for major functionality, my users
have expressed their...distaste. I've always had to either put everything
on one screen, or use a tabbed system similar to what PCGen uses. It's
gotten to where I don't even bother to build those into my prototypes
Even for errors (such as the popup that tells me I have to choose an
alignment before a class), I've gotten into the habit of avoiding popups,
instead, changing focus to the control that needs adjusting, and changing
the label to be red or putting a message in a status bar at the bottom of

since it's been an optional tab for several versions now. I'm also going to
reserve comment on the Summary tab until I've seen it. That has the
potential to become very crowded, though.
