Why does entering house customization close gumps and backpacks?

    For the 2D client, house customization has my status window, character paperdoll, and any opened and arranged backpacks/sub-containers within closed on entering customization mode.

    I have two questions, the first question posters here might be able to dig up information on, the second is for EA/Mythic:

    1. Why is it always the case that gumps and backpacks have to be closed upon entering house customization mode in 2D? I thought I saw the reason for this posted somewhere on a UO forum (maybe this one who knows) but searches don't return any information that might be the reason for this.

    2. Could EA/Mythic please have the 2D client restore the gumps and backpacks which were closed when the 2D client entered customization mode? If the 2D client has the ability to restore player gumps/backpacks stored upon logout of a character, I fail to see why house customization mode cannot also do the same whenever I exit customization mode, whatever the reason.

    I'm not sure why this is such a big deal, but I do think it's lame you can't chat and customize.

    You can chat in general chat, alliance and guild chat no? What is the big deal here? No one can enter the plot anyway, So who is likely to hear you?

    its probably cuz of problems may arise if you do an action in your backpack or paperdoll that causes something to happen as a result. so to prevent all kinds of errors that might happen they just close everything off. they probably close off macros too.
    some, if not all of the chats do not work - like the alliance. I dont think I tried the general or guild ones.

    Wait, what?
    Is this in EC Client?
    I've always used 2D and whenever I go into customization, party, alliance, guild and global can not hear me. I remember a lot of people in alliance telling others "oh, so and so is customizing so they can't answer you". It this a new fix?

    Nah, you have always been able to talk in guild/alliance/party chat while in custo mode AFAIAA. Fairly sure you can chat in global chat too but I have never tried that.

    ...

    I THINK it's because the game puts you in "ghost" mode in order to customize a house. Don't quote me on this, but it seems like that is what is happening.
