Description
I've set "Platform" to "Mac OS" but already had this issues on earlier versions on Windows... I just don't know if it has been fixed since then.

In the New Resource or Model wizard, the choice of the attribute type in the dropdown list is often not taken into account.

When clicking on a type in the list, the dropdown disappears but the type remains "string" (for instance)

Sometimes, the dropdown won't even show...


In the same wizard, trying to click on any attribute validation button in the grid could become really annoying : the button just won't react !


See the attached videos to figure out the problem more precisely.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Open a New Resource or New Model wizard

- Add an attribute to the model

- Try to change the attribute type or to click on a validation button
Workarounds
For the type list :

If it doesn't show when you click on it, give focus to the attribute name and try again.

If the type doesn't change, try again until the list closes but doesn't disappear, then click on the cell behind the dropdown to validate your choice.
(see attached videos)


For the validation buttons :

just try until it works...
