I figured it would be easier to ask just to reenable the Apply button rather than change the dialog behaviour overall. The Apply button certainly works when it’s there.

That being said, I’d love to see Apple-like behavior if possible. I guess that would basically just mean adding the dialog send message to the end of edits?

I suppose this is something to do with the Apple Human Interface Guidelines that prefer saving edits automatically on close over requiring the user to hit a save/apply button. In this case, however, the Apply button is mainly useful for live edits (it could be renamed to Update?). I suppose another option is to update the interface whenever enter is received in a text box.
