Maps should not completely close and disappear when you press 'ESC' in input mode (or not at all actually)

Cheers ... yeah .. you press 'ESC' to get out of the cell edit mode and the whole window closes ... :shock:

I've had to change how the edit control works, and also get the parent window to check if the cell is in 'edit' mode before determining if closing the window, or just leave it be. Changes done for next version

Please provide another solution to close the graph independently from the map window. Currently, it's ESC key only and that obliges to use keyboard.
Should be close'able with mouse.

What is your suggestion? I don't like adding a title bar for the graphics windows (takes up more space)

Default operation is to close them both together

Think about "Full touch control of Nistune" (win10 tablet / car dashboard)
So, a cross ....

There was a title bar before, this is the way Windows works.

Since Windows 8 the title bars almost doubled in size taking more room, so they were removed a while ago.

I notice testing today you cannot move the undocked window (since the lbutton + move will adjust graph position instead of the window) so a title will be needed. Title bar is not needed when windows are docked, so might just add the title bar back when undocked only, and make sure window display order is correct order
