Since we are having so much fun with the select-on-focus issue, I
thought I'd post all the outstanding bugs for 2.0.0 that are essentially
"decide about a UI issue". (Excluding keynav bugs and some menu issues.)
[ If you are replying about only one issue, or a heated discussion comes
up about one issue, please separate it out and change the subject
51027 patch to change scroll behavior from half page to full page
(Actually, a full page minus a line)
53223 need to make text in GtkFontSel's "preview" translatable
Translation is probably good in the short term. XP has a sort
of neat feature where it figures out the scripts the font
supports and you can select canned previews for any of those
scripts. (But you can't edit the preview text, which I think
58389 'Active area' for GtkRange
Implementation of cancellation by moving away from the scrollbar
a sufficient distance.
58392 Opaque resizing for paned widgets
Since opaque window resize is pretty universal, it probably makes
sense to do it here. (And it looks a lot better than opaque
window resize since it is all in one process.) Only question
is whether we need a setting to turn it off for slow machines.
Probably we can skip that until we get complaints, and if
we get complaints, we can dig the code out of CVS.
58605 Allow Delete as a keybinding
(For changeable menus). I think the current plan is to be
very liberal with accelerator changing with the idea that
we'll allow global locking to deal with the confusion issue.
59600 Motif-like Ctrl+Clicks on scrollbars are very desirable
Request to add control-click on the arrows to go to the end;
59707 Need keynav for selectable labels.
Question here is how to handle focusing a selectable label;
the code to implement keynav is there? Should they be in
the tab chain?
(Would require some special code in GtkMessageBox to avoid
the label typically getting the focus when they come up,
and might be a bit confusing in general.)
60590 Keyboard shortcuts displayed in menus should be translated
Translation of Control/Shift/etc in menus.
67649 Patch for UI issues with range widgets
Main controversial request is to change things so right click
reverses the direction of action for all mouse bindings.
I don't think this is a good idea, but maybe a reverse direction
modifier could be snuck in?
68309 DEFAULT_SCROLLBAR_SPACING should be 0
68938 GtkDialog's separator should be removed
69569 OK/Cancel stock items shouldn't have menmonics?
