Hi JB,

You should be able to display modal dialogs from other modal dialogs.  
This is normal. However, you cannot bring any window, including other  
modal dialogs, to front by clicking on it while a modal dialog is on  
screen. Nor can you edit any modal dialog. You need to make it  
toplevel to edit it.

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
