Summary 0011952: Character Palette UI enhancements
Revision 2015-07-08 14:02 by Kunda
Description 1) DONE The icons in the Character Palette do not, but should, have explanatory tooltips

2) There should be something indicating that the empty boxes are for 'favorite characters', perhaps a heading

3) The empty boxes should be accompanied by something indicating that they can be filled via drag-and-drop, perhaps a tooltip

4) Insert -> _Glyph_ opens a window called _Character Palette_ which doesn't have the word 'glyph mentioned anywhere in it or in the subsequent windows - it's rather disorienting. There's seldom any instances where there's such a large wording discrepancy of the menu name of a window.

It would make more sense to keep the Character Palette terminology since that is closer to what's commonly accepted in other software, but adding that to the menu would cause confusion due to the presence of the Character menu item right below - that one is further confusing in itself since it encompasses everything from punctuation to symbols to _page numbers_ and while best left to its own ticket, for the purposes of this one can be renamed tempoarily to something like Special Characters(?).

5) Keep the 'Unicode Search' window from closing each time one chooses a character to add to it. That way one can make multiple selections.

6) Offset the 'Unicode Search' window to open under the 'Character Palette' and not behind it.
