|if you always have to remember to specify the ‘work properly’ option, something is wrong with the design|
Yes, I'm always so annoyed by this. I remember the photocopier in the Trinity library had a mode: automatically copy whatever you put in, the same size, on the same size paper. What I couldn't figure out is why that mode wasn't the default!
To be fair, this often happens when originally there was some reason to do it a way other than "work properly", or beginners and experts have opposite expectations for "work properly", and you get stuck with the wrong default. But yes, you should be able to make it better somehow.
