#2830 assigned enhancement

Change item name "Get Info"

Description

Revision is hrev28069.

Since you can change the default application and permissions of a file in the Get Info panel, the name isn't really adequate.

I propose "Properties". Can we keep the short-cut ALT+I ? I dunno...

Change History (10)

IIRC Mac OS X has the same problem. Maybe we could just remove the "Get" to be able to keep the shortcut.

Good call!

Replying to humdinger:

I couldn't ever get used to "Get Info", i'm always loosing a few seconds looking a the bottom of the menu for a "Properties" item :) Dunno, maybe i don't actually use Haiku enough yet to get used to it, but it sure feel strange when using several os'es. If too many users are accustomed to the "Get Info"/Alt-I i would at least like to move the item at the bottom of the menu.

But I'm used to have the Add-Ons at the bottom... :)

I know what you mean, however, I have the same problem. I solved it by simply using the shortcut ALT+I. :)

It's actually a stupid idea to put it at the end of the (relatively long) menu, as this makes a very long for one of the items you use more often than others.

At least I'm always annoyed on other platforms, and I wouldn't like to see Haiku copying bad behaviour.

I'm for removing "Get" but no more now until we have some sort of GUI guidelines and that probably after R1.

Milestone: R1Unscheduled

This are the discussion we had and I belive that this can be done after R1. Unscheduled was things to do after R1 yes? http://www.freelists.org/post/haiku-development/Should-these-be-implemented
