you're trapping your own errors instead somehow?
Callbacks are just wrapped in pcalls/xpcalls, since most of them are non-fatal to begin with, but would effectively kill the entire UI until the user does a /reload. You can do a /powa debug for a log however with copy buttons which give the full stack trace.

It may be less confusing if when the user adds a trigger it gets added as a tab or some kind of button that lets the user know hey I added this to a list of active triggers. Then they click the button to edit that trigger.
With how slick the UI looks, this part just doesn't feel as clean as some other parts of the UI. Not a really big priority imo but something to add on the todo list for later maybe.
Hmm, well I did add an integrated tab system to the list inlay. I suppose I could give it a quick shot, thanks for the suggestion.

Edit: I tabbed the support triggers as a small test, I think it could work but there's the issue of overflow.
