Disable DAX button when Monitor button is Enabled

I'm not sure if this should be categorized as an Idea or a Problem, so out of caution, I'm posting this as an Idea.

Much confusion occurs in the GUI when presenting the user with invalid combinations.  Such apparent invalid combination is when both the Monitor and DAX button are enabled.  Whether this is a bug or an intentional design, both DAX and Monitor features are currently mutually exclusive of each other during operation.

My recommendation would be:  If the Monitor button is enabled and the user presses the DAX button, programmatically deactivate the Monitor button.   Vice versa, if the DAX button is enabled and the user enables the Monitor, programmatically deactivate the DAX button.

Good GUI design prohibits presenting the user with an invalid selection or an invalid combination of selections.

    I'm with you on that, Jay.  It took me a while to figure out that DAX and MON were mutually exclusive.

     I would still like to figure out a way to monitor with DAX on, maybe through the PC.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
