comment Dialog asking to save changes when doing a selection change?
Regarding your auto-save suggestion: The items are indeed text files which usually are edited outside of our application. I don't know of any text editor which automatically saves files to disk. Also, we have one viewer now, I don't want to turn our application window into a whole text editor which can have dozens of edited files open. Hence we need to limit to this one visible viewer/editor.

comment Dialog asking to save changes when doing a selection change?
Regarding your ways 1. and 2. I've updated my question. BTW, for dialog boxes with OK and Cancel buttons I would NOT expect that the item's content is saved immediately, but first when I press the OK button. Beside that, we don't use (modal) dialogs, but windows and don't want to change that.

Inactive (aka disabled) items can't be activated, so there is no possibility to show any useful error message.

No, the combobox selection does not trigger any action.

So you also disagree on context-sensitive menus hiding items which are never applicable on the selected object and suggest to always show all items?

comment What are good rules for naming menu items?
Why to use an icon? It clutters the menu and usually is so small that one can't see what it means. And the killer argument against icons: Apple does not use icons in the menus. ;)

comment What are good rules for naming menu items?
What about singular vs. plural use, e.g., should a menu be named "Window" or "Windows"?
