Add the Window properties toolbar back in Clarion 9

One of the things I have really missed in Clarion 9 is the properties toolbar in the window designer.  It made it quick to edit text on labels, change font etc.  

Today, as I was looking for something completely unrelated, I found my old missing friend!  To enable it, go to the "Tools | Options" menu and then follow the screenshot below.

The next time you open the Window Structure designer, you'll see the toolbar again.  It can't be moved, likt it could in the old IDE, but at least it's there:)

The only thing I'd add to it is the option to change font color.

    I may have been somewhat premature. It appears that the text does not always change if it's changed in the Property Toolbar and the change is not cascaded into the Property Grid. But I did use it for fonts and that seemed to work fine.

    Update: This seems to work fine, IF you use the Enter key to accept changes. With the Tab key it doesn't always seem to update.
