You have to commit the changes by leaving the text control in order to make the "Save" option visible. Also, the string is changed when selecting "Save". However, the size of the string currently cannot be changed.

Oh, I see. How... limited. :)

Axel, BTextView has SetModificationMessage() or something. You should fix DiskProbe. I just hate it whenever I encounter an app that has this problem, though I think IOM currently has it as well in it's Property list view.

Well, that's just a minor thing that doesn't match the title of this bug, but you're right, it could be fixed.

Maybe I get around allowing attribute data to be changed in size, too - it's not just limited as humdinger said, it's also annoying :-)

Then let's track these to issues in this ticket.
