Wishlist: Primary data entry controls in all dialogs

Recommended Posts

IMO, all dialogs that expects input from the user should offer primary controls visible at all times. As it is now, some dialogs depends on the user to right-click with the mouse to get a menu for entering data or command. Context menus like this is fine, but should be secondary to other controls.


The problem with only right-click menus is that they don't show until the user actually right-click. It's perfectly Ok for a user who knows how to do this, but first-time users have a hard time finding these functions (without reading the manual or ask other users).


For instance, in the Exhibition dialog there is no "New" button. Why not?


Another example: to add place field texts in the Edit Name Style dialog, the user must right-click to be able to modify labels. A "Modify" or "Edit" button would be nice here.


Please add buttons like "New" and "Edit" where appropriate.
