Summary0012265: Optical margins setting too verbose and unintuitive
DescriptionGiven that optical margins usually are a one-off decision, the radios are too verbose in the Properties dialog.

Also, the radios are not particularly intuitive:
o None
o Both sides
o Left only
o Right only

Two separate buttons for left and right would be perfectly enough and more intuitive:
|X| Left |X| Right

The setting could then also be included into the "Advanced Settings" tab, unscattering the UI a bit.

Also, with regard to RTL, it is actually not left vs. right but begin vs. end.
TagsNo tags attached.

imho 'left' and 'right' should be ok for rtl and ltr…
