IRRE uses page reload instead element reload
If a record you're adding has a type field, changing the type forces a reload of the element (i.e. an IRRE tt_content/text record and you're changing it to a text with image record). As the whole page is reloaded and not only the element, all IRRE elements are collapsed after the reload. So you loose the context you've been working in. This is a usability weakness that can be quite annoying when you have a lot of records, i.e. in a big Powermail form.

This is definitely an annoying behaviour.
There is a workaround for the moment: if you're inserting records (say a dozen new form fields in Powermail) you can answer the "Would you like to save now in order to refresh the display" dialog with "Cancel", so you can go on inserting fields, and in a second roundup fill in all the details for each record after having saved.
