Using v4.8.0.

I'm seeing a problem with run configurations in Photon that I've never seen before.

I often need to enter property settings in the "VM arguments" field in the run configuration and save those changes permanently.

Today, I'm seeing that when I enter text in that field, the "Apply" button doesn't ungrey.

I also tested making a change to the "Program arguments" field, and it does the same thing.

However, I was able to figure out a workaround. I found that the "Working directory" field does not have this problem. I tried changing it to "Other" and then entering the same value as the default. That made the Apply button sensitive. I then went up to the "VM arguments" field and entered the text I needed to add.

I then clicked Apply. When I ran my test, I verified that it was working, which means it was reading those additional properties I set. This also demonstrates that not only was it not letting me apply the changes earlier, it actually wasn't even using them at all, because if I just clicked "Run", my test fails because those required properties are not set. I guess this last point is not that surprising.
