My guess was that as one usually wants all legends in a given page to look the 
same, it is probably ~ok.

On the other hand, I think you can hold multiple plot dialogs open.

Single Clicking on the borders of a plot opens the dialog.   Currently double 
clicking in a plot is used to select a plot object's dialog (which needs to 
be made more consistent).

Should we loose double clicking on plot objects to enable double clicking on 
view objects?
