Description Regina Henschel 2005-11-25 14:52:47 UTC
In a database window go to 'Edit' - 'Database'. There are three dialogs. The
terms in that dialogs are confusing. There are identical sections, which are
named different, and there are section, which are named identical, but they are
different in content. I will mark the places with a capital.
You will find:
	Database properties (=dialog title)
		Advanced Properties (=tab) (A)(B)
		Additional Settings (=tab)
Connection Type
	Advanced Properties (=step 1)(B)
	Connection settings (=step 2)(A)
		User Authentication
	Additional Settings (=step 3)
Advanced Settings (C)
	Advanced Properties (=dialog title)(B)(C)
		Generated Values (=tab)
		Special Settings (=tab)

(A) Identical content, different terms
(B) 'Advanced Properties', three times different content
(C) dialog title <> menu term

My suggestion:
	Database properties (=dialog title)
		Connection settings (=tab); because it is the same as below
		Additional Settings (=tab)
Connection Type
	Database Type (= step 1); because this is like the first step in the wizard and
so called there
	Connection settings (=step 2)
		User Authentication
	Additional Settings (=step 3)
Advanced Properties; to distinguish from 'Additional Settings' and same term as
'Properties' on the same level and same as dialog title
	Advanced Properties (=dialog title)
		Generated Values (=tab)
		Special Settings (=tab)

I also think that we rethink the menu/dialog structure.

I reassign this enhancement to the User Experience team for evaluating.
