Mode Appears twice in Summarize tool

Highlighted

When choosing an action for Summarize tool on any string field - Mode appears twice after you select Mode from the String Processes.

 

Why show two Mode actions in the same drop down?

Hey @anishgrandhi 

 

Can you provide a screen shot of what you are trying to do?

Hi @anishgrandhi 

 

It looks like the list that is in the dropdown once you've add the field to summary actions is made up of all the available options when you initially click the add button.  Here's the list for a string value with the Mode appearing twice

and here's the initial string options

The final list includes Mode from the Numeric menu(the only option available) and the second one from the String menu along wiht all the other string options.

 

Both Modes work the same way giving the same results

Yes. @danilang demonstrated it correctly.

 

But from a User Experience perspective, why show 2 Mode Actions if the user wants to go back and change? 

 

Although both Mode have same functionality, it's not intuitive immediately to a first time user. Showing the Mode only once would be better IMO.
