    Most elements could use a much larger form field than the tiny one currently presented by this plugin. It’s not very useful, except for adding a class to a p tag or something. When it comes to links (e.g. adding a title with some information) or other use cases, the tiny input area is just not adequate. It would be much better to create a modal that could be as large as the screen (if on a small device), and otherwise, just much larger, with a nicely sized text area for the attributes. The label could be moved above the field to provide more width, perhaps, and at least a few lines 300px wide, would allow doing something much more useful.

    In some situations, the current modal has such usability issues with the size of the attributes field that I still end up having to switch to the text editor, which kind of defeats the purpose. 😉

  • I guess I can’t edit the title of this “issue”, or I’d change it to say “Edit element modal”. The attribute field is what is really too small, but in order to accommodate a larger text area for attributes, the modal would (ideally) need to be much larger (and/or be reformatted to have the label above the field so that the attributes text area could span the width of the modal). Anyway, I did spend some time looking at the code, but wasn’t quite sure how to make the changes I’m suggesting. I’m hoping you agree with my feedback, though, and have a good idea for how to implement this. I really do like this plugin… it’s (almost) exactly what I was looking for.

    Hi lowemo,

    I agree with you there. It’s actually something I’ve noticed myself. I’ll look into it and try to get an update out soon.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
