We can easily open multiple instances of the control editor if we open controls from the file manager.
For some reason, if we customize a control from within a VI (right-click...advanced...customize), we can only work on one control at any give time. If we try to customize a second control, the option is grayed out (image) until we close the first one.
Many times it would be useful to be able to work on multiple controls at the same time, for example if we need to cut&paste elements from several other controls into a new one. (One example would be making a color LED).
Please remove this seemingly arbitrary restriction that limits us to one instance of the control editor. Is there a good reason why this is currently not allowed?
