Is there a way to remove the close icon at the left top corner of the popover? I thought to use a shape to cover it but it's not very elegant!
I think that X at the top left of a popover is only for layout mode, so you can close it then.
I've never seen the X in a popover in browse mode.
What theme are you using? Maybe it is theme specific.
Dont worry. I've had about 3 of those today. My face is flat and bruised.
Oh yes! Coding, like any kind of creative process, is a humbling experience. At least once a week I get there. It always starts with “ why is this not working as intended!?”. Checked the code 3 times, no error found. Must be a bug of that thing. Then a change of perspective, most times triggered by an unrelated event ( phone call i,e.) and the sudden awareness that the implemented logic is flawed in an obvious way.
Now, when hurting a wall, I try to change perspective in order to find the error.
Ouch! At least a FacePalm is less painful than “hurting a wall.”
He's too vague on the method... is there any other way than hitting to hurt a wall? Maybe it changes with the perspective...
I duly confirm that the angled, change-of-perspective approach, is less painful than the flat-faced one

I spend time trying to close a dialog box, thinking it is broken, only to realize it is a Snagit image. My forehead isn't flat ... it's indented.
This reminds me of a particularly baffling occasion when I was helping a customer. Nothing they clicked on behaved as expected; messages appeared and various other surprising events occurred. Eventually it turned out the customer was looking at a help screen I had created - an image of the interface to which I had conscientiously added hotspots and interactive features etc..
I was developing and working on the same computer... I was constantly interrupted and multitasking. A few times, returning to what I thought I was doing before the interruption - data entries- I would be puzzled that the commands were not at the same place or would start processing a complaint that would seem very familiar... Only to realize I was in the Dev DB... Luckily, I always clued in before having done too much work... Although one time I called a broadcaster telling them they were late on producing their response... yikes....
After that, I changed the background of the dev file to a bright lime green!!!
Usually, dev and prod files are hosted on different servers. Setting a window name that includes the host name gives clear information about the environment.

Good idea. Although I am so spaced out that I might not even see that sometimes. The Prod file was indeed on a hosted server and the Dev file, on my machine (not for profit: didn't want to pay another 400-500$ monthly for a dev server).
