Yes, that dialog.

It's hard to explain in detail. The dialogs and markers behave a bit random ... 
Or maybe I just don't understand how they work. Anyway I'll try:

In print view:
  Click red mark.
  Hint Slur Position

The info window appears, I keep this dialog open.
 "First click on the note head of the note where the slur starts. "

It seems:
a) If I click on a note (where the slur really starts, or where I would like 
the slur to start), it sets the end marker too, sometimes random or far away 
outside the page.
b) If I click on the stem or above/below the note (where I want the slur to 
start), it works better. I get visible start and end markers = blue cirkels. 
Not always where I expected them.
c) I didn't have to click the red cross. Click anywhere on the slur also seems 
to work.

The info window says: "Now drag the begin/end markers to suggests slur 
position/angle. Right click when done."

I drag the blue cirkle up/down.
On drag-release the "Slur Angle/Position Yes/No" often comes up. Sometimes on 
the second drag-release.

The result on "right-click when done" is that the slur moves a bit though 
usually not like I expected. 

I also find it unclear what the blue cirkles are for. Why set these start/end 
markers at various notes when it doesn't affect the start/end of the slur?

I know this may be hard to change :-) but an idea to make this easier to use is:
 - Use the existing red cross, drag them to change start/end slur and 
 - See end result directly. No popups.
 - Drag entire slur over the staff to change position from under to over.

No idea. It was automatic.
