Description khaipi 2005-10-26 04:27:16 UTC
There are already useful design buttons in NB 5.0 Matisse to align a group of 
widgets to the first selected one.  I suggest we also have a button that sets 
the width of a group of widgets to the width of the first selected one and 
also another button that does the same thing for height.

These actions are available in the context menu under "Same Size" submenu. Not
sure if we need buttons in toolbar for this...
Comment 2 khaipi 2005-11-03 18:32:59 UTC
I know these functions are available as context menu selections but they are 
commonly required and having buttons would save 3 mouse clicks per operation.  
There are buttons for alignment so why not for sizing?
Comment 3 Tomas Pavek 2005-11-04 08:30:18 UTC
Because you can't have all actions from context menus in toolbar ;)
But we will consider the "Same Size" for the future release.
