Warning before a component is edited

Got an idea to improve SketchUp?

Warning before a component is edited

We should be given a pop-up warning if we are about to edit a component - especially in a large model. Glancing at the Entity info inspector panel does not work well because the top of the panel is sometimes obscured and would therefore take an action to reveal it. And even if it's un-obscured, just glancing takes time when you are focused on the work at hand. If I edit a component without knowing it has copies elsewhere in the model, it creates a huge problem.

There was a plugin made for people that have this problem with their workflow.

EditFlag has an issue with newer versions' stricter Ruby.
I posted a fix here:

which addresses it, but it does mean editing its RB file !
