I like my semi modal dialogue :)   -- that's is why I did not choose
modal for the form in Qt Creator!

It hangs around allowing needed interaction by the user between the
editor and the help information (even allows drag and drop), and
obvioiusly keeps the script running!

Best of all worlds!!!

Please be careful to fix it, withoiut breakling this great feature!
