PENS: Better UI/UX


Could feedback and mapping be made available on the pen editor and element dialog boxes
As explained in other post, we have the pens systematically configured but using them is another matter as a user must click on a colour to see its name/definition


It would be of great benefit to 

A. In all appearances of a pen table, have mouse over/tooltip of name and optionally line width


B. Allow a background image or ui edit dialog framing around the pens to group and make the matrix very apparent to users
This is of course very rough but gives the general idea




Ideally this would be a 'detail' mode of the dialog box; ie drill into a deeper level; as users become familiar, the top level pen table is enough.
