Bravo! Bravo for making it possible to double click on a layout in the main Compile dialog and edit it! Bravo for making which section type is affected by which layout obvious when editing either layouts or separators!

No longer do I need to do screenshots to keep track of which section layout I need to edit in order to affect which section type!!! (Or bounce back and forth between the compile format editor and the main compile dialog.) This change alone makes the (necessarily tedious for a perfectionist like myself) compile format editing process MUCH easier. This, along with the "Test..." button on the lower right of the format editor, saves me hours.

Thank you!

I know right? :) It’s one of those refinements that didn’t make the cut for the 3.0 launch, but I’m glad we waited it out a bit since the implementation we have now is better than any idea we had floating around back then. At this point I don’t know how I managed with the way it was before!
