More detailed textstrings/captions for rotate commands

Postby herb » Tue Jul 05, 2016 10:42 am

Hello,

With this thread I ask for 3 new textstrings in browser mode,
in order to really identify which rotate command is represented by a toolbar icon.
No change of functionality is required.

Details:
During the past days I did many tests with "rotate an image".
Here I have learned that XnViewMP (I worked with 0.79 and also 0.81) has 2 sets of commands:
- a set of commands that do lossless rotation with (internal commands): cmd_lrotate90, cmd_lrotate180, cmd_lrotate270
- a normal set with commands: cmd_rotate90, cmd_rotate180, cmd_rotate270 (without l in commandname)
that also depend on additional settings

Both sets of commands are available in browser-mode and also in viewer-mode.
But to my surprise different commands have identical textstrings/captions in GUI.

In order to get a better overview which command is really represented by a menu and/or by a toolbar icon,
I tried (within a private german translation) to modify the existings textstrings:
For test I added a sequence number at the end of existing strings.

All menu and toolbar icons used in VIEW-MODE now got different textstrings/captions.
(When a command only has an icon in toolbar, the helptext explained the correct command).

The original texts for cmd_rotateXXX and cmd_lrotateXXX are identical, but this can be modified for each translation.
From a programmers point of view: we have 6 string-variables/constants, but always 2 of them have identical content.


But in BROWSER-MODE there are only 3 different textstrings available (we have only 3 string variables/constants).
So it is not possible to use different captions for commands with "l" and without "l".
These 3 (modified) textstrings are different to those used in VIEW-MODE.
They are ok for all lossless-rotation commands used in menu and toolbar.

It would be very very helpful to have different captions for the different commands. Not to say that this is a must for me.

Please Pierre enhance XnViewMP and introduce another 3 textstrings in BROWSER-MODE that are used as captions for "normal rotate" commands without a "l" in internal name.
Please do it within the next release.
Thanks in advance
Best regards
Herb

Hello Pierre, hello Helmut,

I have seen that you started to classify all reported problems/errors. Thanks for this.

And please classify this enhancement as "will be done/corrected in next version".
Thanks!

Best regards

Thank you for suggesting this. I also think that all suggestions should be classified. Status like "Suggested / Defined / Implemented in next version / Retest / Closed" come to my mind. Let's see...

There is a very related discussion / suggestion "Assigning functions to toolbar".

Hello,

please remember this request for next version.
It would be very very helpful to know which type of rotate is performed clicking on an icon.

Best regards
Herb
