    with a multiple select we can choose more then one role - like administrator + author.

    it's important. please implement this.

    Yes, this additional functionality is crucial. I have several different types of roles that should be bylined.

    This is not something this plugin was created for, but I'll think about it. Naturally you can use two different widgets for two different roles like I do.

    with the ability of managing and changing roles, it should be, cause otherwise it's arbitrary to choose only one role... don't you think?

    editor is the default role. Naturally if you don't have that role it might be arbitrary. I use Members Plugin to control my roles and capabilities.

    when you have more then one role, it is arbitrary to show only one role.
    in many projects more then one role is considered as "authoring" role.

    Yes I understand that, but like I said this plugin is not designed for showing multiple roles in same widget. There must be other plugins that do that.

    But it's a nice idea and I keep that in mind in next update.
