Description benji2 2005-03-30 13:38:53 UTC

In Style edition mode (for example paragraph style), there are two buttons
"Standard" and "Reset" which affect only the displayed tab's attributes. Yet, it
feels like it's global to all tab, since it's just besides the "Ok/Cancel/Help"
buttons. (I have pressed "Reset" many times on the Organizer tab, wondering
while it didn't reset my attributes). Maybe making it clear that those two
buttons are local to the tab would be nice. A trivial way to do it would be to
align those two buttons on the left, while having the Ok/cancel/Help ones on the
right. Another way would be to draw a frame around those two. An even better way
would be to make those two buttons inside the frame of each tab (there is enough
room for it, but it may take more memory). One last way would be to change the
label to make it more precise about what the two buttons do.

Thanks !

Actually, i just realize that the "help" button also is tab-dependant, which
makes it hard for the above behaviour to be figured out by reading the help page ;)

I was just about also to file this small useability issue, which has been around
since the early days of OOo (and before).
