Some of the FIle->New dialogs do not work correctly.

Issues I found were:

  • New Name does never allow saving (Finish button is always disabled)

  • Name cache fields behave strange as even with protected title cache they are not completely disabled.

  • Creating a new taxon does not allow creating a new orphaned taxon

  • Specimen: hitting "f" with no input field selected closes the window as it is interpreted as ALT-F which should hit the Finish button => does currently not exist anymore

  • Specimen: allows to save a completely empty Specimen which may make sense in the bulk editor but not in File->New context as you will not be able to find the specimen later => does currently not exist anymore

  • Description updated (diff)
  • Status changed from New to Feedback
  • Assignee changed from Cherian Mathew to Katja Luther
  • Target version changed from TaxEditor Next Major Release to Release 5.1
  • % Done changed from 0 to 70

This seems to be fixed more or less.

  • Names can be saved now, the nameCache and authorshipCache are not completely disabled when protected but can not really be edited (can you leave a message, why they can't be completely disabled, if this is not possible).
  • Taxa can only be added if a parent is selected in the navigator
  • Specimen were removed from the File->New menu.

If we still know, can we leave a message why they have been removed? Or reenable them?
