#314 closed enhancement (fixed)

resume by default should have "new" option

Reported by: walter Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: 0.85.x
Severity: Minor Keywords: sugar-love
Cc: eben, garycmartin Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description

I love the ability to resume an activity from the Home View...

The resume-by-default option is less useful, however, because there is no way to create a new instance.

The "Start" palette option is supposed to do that. How could we make it clearer?

Could the start icon be a white on black activity icon as per Eben's original designs? Here's his example for write:

I also wonder if 'New' would have been a better word than 'Start' when I first saw it I was thinking 'start what? The default (which would be the last journal entry)'... but this one is a string change so would need more eyeballs to make a call.

I interpreted start to me start the activity I had opened previously.

I also wonder if 'New' would have been a better word than 'Start'

+1

A separate entry using the uncolored icon is a good alternative.

  • Milestone changed from Unspecified by Release Team to 0.86
  • Owner changed from marcopg to tomeu
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Changed to the uncolored icon in http://git.sugarlabs.org/projects/sugar/repos/mainline/commits/e7cd6a2a

Moving this ticket to 0.86 where we'll change the string.

  • Version changed from 0.83.x to 0.85.x

Just wanted to ping on this old string change recommendation for "New" instead of "Start" in the Home views Activity palette (favourite and list).

I thought it was "Start new"?
