B2: "Tagged files.." message box - Several issues

Post by helmut »

When tagging multiple files and starting an action, a message box "Tagged files will be used instead selected files, do you want to continue with tagged files?" is displayed.

There's some issues with this message box:

- Information?
The title says "Information". But an information cannot have "OK" and "Cancel", I think.

- "Cancel" does not cancel
When pressing the "Cancel" button, the action started (e.g. Batch Convert) is started with the selected files although cancel has been pressed. I think something basic is wrong here, I guess this message box should be a question message box with "Yes" and "No". Or "Cancel" should do it's job and really cancel the action.

- Wording "instead of"
The message text is not correct English, I think. Mustn't it say "Tagged files will be used instead of selected files, do you want to continue with tagged files?".

- Message text in multiple lines.
This is a minor issue. I'd prefer to have message texts separated in two sections: First section informs the user, the second section asks the user what to do. In this case the message should look like this:

Tagges files will be used instead of the selected files.
Do you want to continue with tagged files?


There might be even an empty line inbetween the two text sections.

In Beta 3 I cannot retest the above issues because the message box isn't shown at all. Do other people still see this message box?

-> New/Open
