Ventity Optimization dialog a bit wonky?

Post by rob_n » Tue Mar 26, 2019 1:46 pm

Hi,
I'm setting up optimizations in Ventity using the dialog box from right-click Edit on Analysis>Optimization. Interacting with the dialog box to add a payoff is giving behavior that I wouldn't expect:

In the Optimizations dialog box, add a row (+) and click on the Payoff dropdown. A sub-dialog box appears. Select the appropriate Entity and Variable, give it a weight, etc. When I click "OK", I would expect all my changes to be accepted and the sub-dialog box to disappear. The sub-dialog box does not disappear. The only way I have figured out to get the changes in the sub-dialog box to be preserved is if I click "OK" and then the [X] box to close the main Optimizations dialog box.

Is this how it is supposed to work?

Best regards,
Rob

Further, when I try to add parameters with the Parameters sub-dialog box, sometimes clicking the (+) shows no new row. The new row does appear if I click "OK", then reopen the Parameters sub-dialog box.

Best regards,
Rob
