Apply appearance to typedef

Status: Declined

Any idea that has not received any kudos within a year after posting will be automatically declined.

There is a bit of inconvenience when I work with typedefs on FP. Very often it is much easier to edit appearance of the control on Front panel: 

Make enum width the same as other text fields

Set cluster elements spacing the same as other elements.

Font type and size - apply to all selected, not one by one.

But when control is a typedef, I have to do these changes only in typedef, otherwise they are lost when I change typedef type.

 

Idea is to add "Apply appearance to typedef" to shortcut menu.
