Description Frank Schönheit 2008-09-04 10:42:15 UTC
- use a database document with an SRB-report which contains at least two
  text boxes
- open this report for editing
- select one of the text boxes
- in the property browser for this text box, select the "General" tab page
- select another text box
=> the properties for this other text box are automatically displayed (which
   is fine), but now the "Data" tab is selected.

This sounds like a minor issue, however, it quickly becomes a usability issue in
real life: When you have to change several "General" properties of several
different text boxes, then you continuously find yourself in re-selecting the
"General" page, since every time you advance to a new text box, the property
browser is reset to the (useless for you) "Data" page.

Also, it's inconsistent with the property browser behavior in other contexts,
i.e. in the normal form design. There, the current tab page is always preserved
when you start inspecting a new object.
