    initial v1  
    33Why are you forcing people to navigate to different pages in the preview area, just so that they can edit the widgets? You’re making the whole process considerably slower by forcing people to navigate to multiple pages. If I want to add widgets to a particular sidebar that isn't actually being previewed, I should be allowed to do this.

    5 Instead of hiding the widget and/or showing a notification when the preview isn't showing that particular sidebar, and then forcing people to navigate to another page before they can edit that sidebar, why not show ALL the sidebars ALL the time, and simply show a notification advising people that the current sidebar wont be displayed on the currently previewed page. This way you give people the choice. If they want to see a preview of the widgets, they can navigate to another page, and if they don't care about the preview, then they can still update the sidebar.

    77By hiding panels and forcing people to navigate to specific pages, just so that they can update their theme options, not only makes updating your site considerably slower, but makes using the Customizer more complicated and confusing for the end user.
