If you could add something to Kentico, what would it be and why?

Add "reset to default" button to widget properties pop-up

When setting default values to widget properties that are hidden, there is no way to reset the property value if the widget default values are changed.

For example, when adding 10 instances of a widget, they will have the hidden field values set as defined in the widget properties.
If the default values are then changed, all 10 instances of the widget need to be removed and re-added to the pages.

By introducing a "reset to default" button, the hidden field values (or all field values) could be "refreshed", without the need to re-add the widget.

    I don't know why this is not already included in Kentico!

    During development, there are usually changes required to be made and having to remove, then add the widget back, to update your changes is ridiculous.

    I'd also like to see a "reset properties" button so when you have the same 10 instances and you add or remove a property, you don't have to go back to each of those instances and re-save them.
