Absolutely, and it's actually training people to learn and use 
inefficient actions. Conceptually and with muscle memory! It's a pity so 
many well-honed, valuable time-saving features of the IDE were discarded 
and forgotten when updating it. An interface should be efficient to use 
hands-on. Improvements don't reduce efficiency. It'll be a good thing 
when the IDE regains some of the strengths it had.

Please QA this if you can - there are many such IDE issues but I haven't 
had time. I'll add my vote. I'm usually working on a tight deadline when 
I notice this stuff. There's another custom prop editor bug (an actual 
bug that makes it easy to lose the edited text) but I forget the trigger 
until I work with it again.

Best wishes,
