Hi Folks,

When I first read Nico's report I thought "yeah... minor bug, hard to 
fix, meh".

Hernán, with your fix I played in an inspector for a couple of seconds, 
and got it!

Not only now I don't need to declare temps used in workspace doIts. The 
BIG difference is that (like workspace variables) these now hold their 
value across evaluations. It gives an amazing new level of power to the 

Before, I'd open a Workspace and copy from Inspector to Clipboard and 
paste into the Workspace in order to be able to use my object. Now I can 
just do everything in the Inspector without worrying about moving 
objects around.

This is a big enhancement for Inspectors! Now at GitHub.
