Description macias 2007-08-24 13:14:29 UTC
There is an [apply] and [close], but [ok] is missing. It is quite widely used 
button which means [apply]+[close]. Ok, user can press those two each time, 
but I think it is a bit odd.

Reassigned to ES.

No, this isn't odd, it's just normal for non-modal dialogs. AFAIR our UX team
will  vote strongly against that.
Comment 4 macias 2007-08-25 10:10:57 UTC
Mba, "non-modal" is an underlying technique you used -- you don't see it unless 
you click in the main window. From visual appearance you wouldn't guess it is 
non-modal. Moreover you can work with every non-modal window as with modal 
window, right?

So [ok] fits there perfectly, for example, for obvious scenarios -- inserting 
hyperlinks :-) 
1) click on [insert hyperlink]
2) click on [internet] (for example)
3) enter URL
4) enter label
5) OK -- but this piece is missing

What could be simpler and more intuitive? And one more thing -- after spotting 
this dialog is non-modal (I didn't, you told me) there is still no harm having 
[ok] button.

Please do not focus on technical details, but on tasks users perform and 
provide the most easy, the most convenient way to do them. Users are not 
interested in implementation, but capabilities. Sorry for obvious truth :-)

I have no take on that, I just mentioned what I thought to remember. I've set
"cj" from our UX team on cc and I hope that he will comment on that. In cases
like this one I usually follow the advice of Christian and his colleagues.
But thanks for your further explanations, they will surely help to understand
everything better.

Less is more...

OK instead Apply+Close is good suggestion.
