Summary0000155: menu confusion: styles
DescriptionWhy is there a "Styles..." option on the Edit menu when there is a Style menu? Why does the Style menu have a "Style" option? (Also: why is the "Color" option a drop-down menu?)
TagsNo tags attached.

Color is a drop down menu because with all the new colours to choose from, it the best way to show it, otherwise the screen fills with all the colours!

But having a drop-down menu on an application menu is disconcerting, and certainly no more efficient than a normal menu (an additional click). Besides, doesn't the drop-down fill the screen the same way a normal heirarchical menu would? Perhaps this should break off into a dialog box. Alternately, the basic colors could be the first heirarchical menu, and the new colors a second one.

The problem is we wanted to allow selection from multiple colour sets at the same time.. anyway.. can discuss with Franz.
The problem with a normal menu is that it fills the screen as there are well over a hundred menu entries to be added, one for each colour.

Reopened as I have sent further patch to Franz for Styles/Effects change.
