Summary 0002993: [Bug] UIManager opening Workspace window w/o the proper model.
Description For this one

In a file list read a text file.
Using the menu (from the text pane)
select read text into workspace.

You now have a window with the file text and the title
 "Workspace from Humptyho.text"

Now edit some changes (or not).

Then using the System Window menu button go to save your file.

Additional Information The menu is small and short. The option to save does not appear.

(When I ran into this I had to open a new workspace copy my edited text and save it from there.)

This turns out to be a UIManager bug.
Instead of opening in a workspace the UIManager default is used to #edit:label: the string. The workspace model is not installed .
The file save option is part of the model menu not the window menu.

There are several other places the UImanager default replaces a Workspace.

I choose not to fix any of this. It properly belongs either to the UIManager creators or to the release team for releasing immature code.

The fixes can probably be found by reverting to the previous version of the broken methods. Or by fixing the UIManager.

The mess here is substantial and enough of a show stopper IMHO to delay beta until it is fixed.

Good luck.

Yours in service, -- Jerome Peace

the attached cs changes the edit:label:accept method of MorphicUIManager to just use the Workspace...
but maybe this should be fixed differently.
