I often switch between graphical modeler and the main QGIS application and wonder why I am not able to operate QGIS when modeler window is open. Saving my models and closing / reopening modeler annoys me, so...

  • Is the a deeper reason for modeler being modal?
  • Is there a simple way to turn off this behaviour (python console)?

Good news is that it's been fixed for QGIS 3.0.
