#272 closed enhancement (obsolete)

Keep button on Naming Alert shows confusing keyboard accelerator label

Reported by: FGrose Owned by: erikos
Priority: High Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: 0.83.x
Severity: Major Keywords:
Cc: eben, benzea Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Assigned

Description

Observed in Soas-200901271941.iso and Soas-200901301336.iso

The 'Keep' button has an keyboard accelerator hint of 'Return'.

I thought at first that I could "return" to my activity. Then I realized the context. The keyboard on the XO and my desktop have the "return" key labelled 'enter' & 'Enter'.

I would actually like to have an 'X' button that would cancel the Keep/Quit action and return me to the activity to continue, if I wanted.

  • Component changed from SoaS to sugar
  • Milestone changed from Unspecified by Release Team to 0.84
  • Priority changed from Unspecified by Maintainer to High
  • Severity changed from Unspecified to Major
  • Version changed from Unspecified to 0.82.x

This sounds broken, I can't run Sugar and verify what is going on right now though.

The problem is that 'Enter' does not work as an accelerator label. I will have a look if I can find another way to do it.

Actually, I guess I was confused.

For the first resume entry no new menu item is created. You can easily see this if you set the title for the first entry - it will show up in the palette header. Make some sense. We should find out now if this is something that confuses people.

I was referring to the overlay/popup that appears when one first closes an Activity to encourage users to enter a specific title and description.

Yes my comment was on the wrong ticket. You might want to comment on 272 anyhow :)

  • Cc eben added

This brings to mind a related issue: we use some different labels on XO keyboards, e.g., erase, that probably need to be different strings on non-XO Sugar instances. (I'll try to track down examples and file a separate ticket.)

"Return" seems to be hardcoded inside GDK, so I don't think it will be simple to change this. One way could be to use the translation facilities, but that would require changing the standard GTK+ translation it seems.

No upstream solution yet. If someone has any other idea...

Bulk change distribution=SoaS -> component=SoaS

  • Component changed from SoaS to sugar-toolkit

This is a toolkit issue that got accidentally assigned to SoaS during an auto-tag. Reassigning - sorry for the confusion.
