To add to Barry's response (Info Box acts like modeless dialog with instant 'apply')...
Many of us display the Info Box vertically (perhaps at the left side of the screen) - vs the horizontal orientation used in the GS default work environments (WE). This lets you see MUCH more info at a glance for quick reading of current settings as well as instant changes.
Also.. note that the WE lets you specify WHAT appears in the Info Box (you can display a LOT more than the GS defaults!!) ... and what ORDER the items appear in - so that you can make sure that things critical to your typical workflow are readily visible.
Where we do not have something like this - and where I definitely support your wish - is any tool settings dialog that modifies GDL object parameters: Window, Door, Label, Object etc ... none of those parameters can be 'stuffed' into the Info Box, and it is often those parameters that we want to play with, resulting in lots of clicking (cmd-T, scroll/expand, change parameter, enter/OK, repeat)
