Nit picks for 7.0.2
Posted 02 June 2006 - 05:06 PM
I have just a few suggestions:
1. Get rid of the version number in the menubar. Nobody does that.
2. Drop "About this Text" from the contextual menu. Sure it's in context but it's not used often at all. It's a single pane of text that people read maybe once when they get new modules. I understand that as developers you're always weighing reduced bloat vs functionality and (In my opinion) contextual menus are one place where you aught to keep it concise. Keep it to the most specific contexts (words, sentences, references, paragraphs) as opposed to more general ones (book, codex, application, window). In fact I'd vote for dropping "Set Text Pane Display" also. I really like the word_auto_select for contextual menus except that it zaps any other selection. In english texts it might be nice to not have a context sub-menu for search. I'm not liking having to do" Search For >> Word" every time. You might also consider decapitalizing "For" and "In" as most other Apps do.
Cheers, Great Work,

I heartily agree that taking the version number off the title would be a good move. Just my two cents.

I also agree about the version number in the icon....it is irritating!

You must be talking about the flame? It doesn't look bad to me, but then again I don't see it often since I have "suppress opening splash screen" checked in the General preferences.
I also noticed that there's heavy jpg compression in the "About Accordance..." screen. PNGs please! It's a beautiful logo, it deserves to be pixel perfect.

Not to be too contrary , but for those of us "old timers" used to using "professional" applications, the version number in the menubar is fairly common and MUCH appreciated. About 1/3 of the applications in my menubar have the version number and it is handy information that saves a trip to /Macintosh HD/Applications/Accordance folder/Accordance and a "Get Info" to retrieve information.
Just my 2 cents worth!

If the the "About Accordance" showed the actual version number there would be no need of it being constantly displayed on the menu bar.
