No, an extra tab on the left, where you can edit the values of the 
Morphs LayoutFrame (top/left/right/bottom offset and fraction).
It's a much more flexible way of defining a position that will behave 
nicely when you resize the widget than what can be done currently 
(albeit abit more complicated)
Morph allSubInstances collect: [:each | each layoutFrame ] thenSelect: 
[:each | each notNil]
editing the instance variables of such an instance for the current morph 
is what I'd like :)

Ehm, my bad, I didn't mean "old" values, I meant the current values of 
the morph. Anchors and Style were the only ones, I believe.

I make a new menu item, type in text, and select a new field. if I 
select the other item without ctrl-s (in Windows) while Text input field 
is focused, I loose the change.
Also, the tabbing order is kind of backwards, going up instead of down 
(Name field -> press tab -> Focus goes to Help text instead of Action
