Description axelb 2005-08-19 14:15:27 UTC
When I use "File - New - Labels" I get a window with three tabs:
* Labels
* Format
* Options

** On Format:
Vertical/horizontal pitch is difficult to understand because what
you would expect is *just* the pitch, but what actually is meant, is
label *and* pitch. IMHO it should be changed to automatically include
the given label width/height and just apply to the actual pitch.
Or at least be rephrased.
- The same of course applies to the corresponding in the preview
(V. Pitch/H. Pitch)

Height -> label height
Width ->label width
again, to make it clearer

** On Label:
Brand -> Should perhaps be "Sheet type"
Type -> Should perhaps be "Label type"
to make it clearer.

User -> should definitly be "User defined"

I personally used at least half an hour the first time I used this to
fully understand how to use it. Another part of the problem is that the
preview does not show what is now know as "v./h. height" before you
have entered some useable values. It would be helpful if it could be
viewed in some way before that too.

Reassigned to HI.

...and, still on the tab "Labels": 
"Inscription" -> probably should be just "Text" or something similar.

It is an enhancement, not defect.
Comment 4 axelb 2006-02-07 09:48:36 UTC
Vel, it is perhaps not *technically* defect, but from a user point of view it
almost is unusable, so it would be nice if someone could improve it :-)

Best regards, Axel Bojer
