Emulator Issues #8474
Request: Turn on/off cheats by just checking them.
Currently the way cheats are activated is you first turn them on, and then you hit apply.
I believe the Apply step is unnecessary, just turning them On should be enough to activate the cheat.
On every other emulator only, you just have to turn on the cheats. No reason for Dolphin to have an extra step :)

"On the same frame"? Then for that you would have to pause the emulator anyways, no?
And if you pause, you still don't have any need for the "Apply" button.
Every other popular emulator out there allows you to enable cheats by just checking them, and so far no one has complained about that method. Dolphin is the only emulator I've tried that makes you first turn on a cheat, and then hit Apply to make it work.
It's not a dealbreaker, but it makes it particularly bothersome having to take those 2 steps when you are creating and testing cheats on the emulator.
It would be more streamlined if you just turn the cheat on and see its effects immediately.
