Description

Currently, the annotations saving operation can be very long.

Users tend to call the 'File > Restart engines' command, hoping that something will get cleared but braking the annotations saving operation.

Users can even quit TXM, hoping they will get control afterwards.

As a long operation!
  • TXM must show the progression of the operation, like what is done for other time consuming commands
  • TXM must display the status of the operation: the user must understand to wait

Solution

a. remove 'File > Restart engines' menu entry
b. open a modal dialog box displaying the progression of the annotations saving operation
