[REQ] MRT button size

Post by *icfu » 2006-11-01, 01:21 UTC

MRT buttons look like they are short before turning their inside out. Instead of extending them in width, consider offering more buttons for configuring.

What do you mean? Are they much different from earlier?

Yep, they are. Maximize window and you'll see.

Maybe it would be a solution (instead of adding more buttons) to make the sections configurable in width, on the fly at best:
1. rename mask
2. extension
3. search and replace
4. counter

Maybe I'll get used to the present look in maximized state but I severely doubt. These oversized buttons just look wrong and too distractive for me.

This was discussed during alpha testing, and the current behaviour with expanding buttons was agreed upon to be the best solution.

Agree.

Curious and absolutely untypically solution, without any need for it.

This is _not_ true.

Well, maybe everybody didn't agree ( http://betaboard.ghisler.ch/viewtopic.php?t=2244 ), but it was agreed that the name and extension part should expand and hence the part where the buttons are placed expands. And nobody objected when Ghisler wrote he had tried both expanding the buttons and just centering them and found that it looked the best with resized buttons.

But all that doesn't mean that it can not be changed, I guess.

I know this thread ( I started it ) and i _actually_ questioned if this is a good idea.

I am aware of that, but to it seemed like nobody objected in the end - sorry for my mistake.
