|0002250||Scribus||User Interface||public||2005-07-16 18:37||2008-07-31 20:24|
|Platform||x86 Linux||OS||Fedora Core||OS Version||3|
|Target Version||1.3.5||Fixed in Version||1.3.5svn|
|Summary||0002250: Paragraph styles UI needs work|
|Description||(a) We're missing tooltips on some fields, and the tooltips should also show over all icons.|
(b) The pull-down tool button for baseline grid needs to go and be replaced by something that users have the remotest chance of actually finding.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
This origininated from my inquiry on IRC about location of Align to Baseline Grid.ringerc pointed out to me the dropdown menus.
After you know what it is, the small down-arrow at the lower right-hand corner is obvious, though not easy for the new user to identify. The "box" outline around the icon when the focus is on it helps a bit, but is again a somewhat accidental discovery. And all of the Effects icons have boxes around them, even those without dropdown menus.
In many ways this user interface has advantages in keeping panels simpler over all, but the tradeoff is in at least initial user-friendliness
|oops ... thanks for fixing that MrB . Char styles indeed...|

Don't you mean "... the remotest chance of actually *missing*" ??? Or there is a subtlety I don't get ! :)
I'd agree with this. The pull-down tool button must go. The check box is ok.
