Description Jesse Glick 2001-07-19 16:50:16 UTC
For UI consistency, the existing Actions pool (SFS under Actions/, Options
window "Actions" node) ought to be a category "Actions" under the Templates area
(SFS Templates/Actions/ I guess). This would match the convention for creating
templates for services in dedicated subfolders. I am not sure how to make this
fully compatible as existing modules have items in Actions/ which would ideally
be automatically linked to; perhaps installation of layers could perform this
"preprocessing" step automatically.

With this change, addition of standard actions to menus, toolbars, and (with
some more UI changes) keyboard shortcuts, could all be accomplished via the New
wizard rather than copy-and-paste from the Actions pool (which could go away).
Think about the Ant "Shortcut" wizard, currently under the "Ant Projects"
templates folder, which generates new "actions" based on a custom wizard--this
could more consistently be placed in this folder. There may be other modules
wishing to do the same (scripting, perhaps, or debugger).

I am affraid we are not ever do this. But that is no shame, the original 
reasons of UI consistency are not valid anymore. The UI is completely 
different even with the old location.
