Hello Deaconu

You can start by reading through all comments on that issue and the PRs that have been previously submitted to fix it. Just be aware that the project structure has changed at some point, so file paths may no longer be valid.

I did read all the comments and checked the PRs, but I don't understand how I should approach the issue considering:

  1. Using smalltalk: It can only be done using two dialogs that would lead to bad UX
  2. Using another library: As @laurent didn't agree to it

I would suggest using another library and style it the same way smalltalk are, but I want to know if this is the appropriate solution as we would have two libraries for the same purpose(mostly).
One solution would be to completely replace smalltalk.
