    Problem

     

    Currently little red arrows indicate when a theme or a style has been changed. But there is no information available about WHAT has changed. This makes it difficult to know if one should SAVE the theme/style or RESET it back to its original definition.

     

    Idea

     

    It must be possible to discover WHAT has changed. One possible mechanism would be a tool-tip on the red arrows which illustrate what has changed:

    The problem is that if changes are saved, which were meant to be thrown away, this can wreak havoc across ALL layouts! The damage can be quite devastating.
