This is an essential functionality that the developers should have addressed long ago. There is no conceptual difference between a response that includes a dialog directive and one that does not; it's only a technical difference. The Echo Show should always be able to include a display template as part of the interaction. The mere fact that you're telling Alexa to focus on a specific response, as in a dialog, shouldn't mean that you lose the ability to display a photo (for example) in connection with it. It basically eliminates the value of an Echo Show in cases where the slot needs to be elicited to guarantee Alexa hears only a narrow range of responses. Please fix this.
