    Am I the only one that noticed this issue described below:

    When using CTRL + mouse click on constraint

    Here is the problem:

    I have existing constraint, either broken or want to change
    I CTRL +double double Left click on the constraint, the window pops up and items selected
    Great I make my changes, click on the check

    NEXT: I do the same step with the constraint window still open (which is blank, because I finished the previous constraint)
    CTRL + double Left click on a different constraint I wish to fix/change

    what happens? I get a blank constraint window (which pretty much nothing happens as I had it blank and open before, so the CTRL + double click is not working with an existing open constraint window even though its blank)

    Only solution is to close/cancel the constraint window every time and restart the steps.

    Is this by design or a bug?

    Either way I would like to be able to just keep moving from constraint to constraint without having to cancel/close the window every time.

    When I use Ctrl+LMB click nothing happens. :confused:
    However if I Ctrl+ Double LMB click I enter edit mode for that constraint. (Didn't know that short cut existed - nice to know.)
    Seems normal to me that you'd have to close that dialog before editing another constraint. Kind of like editing feature sketches.

    Ya I meant to say double click, but it is annoying that if I double click, it does not transition to the one that I am trying to edit/open, I think it should, having to close/cancel the constraint window is quite annoying and slows the workflow IMO
