Description

Summary

Status preferences are intimidating. By aligning the dropdowns, they become much less frightening, and consequently, easier to use.

I forgot to mention it and am therefore doing requisite commenting on my own bug opened not long ago, but this mockup also includes an adjustment to the language, which obviously needs to be checked to see if it will translate well, but, at least in english, improves usability by improving the visual design.

(In 2de2127f2fc9) Improved wording and alignment in the "Status" pane of Adium's preferences as suggested by ctbeiser. Thanks! Fixes #15370.

Patch Status: Accepted

I made the changes manually as the 1.4.x NIB ctbeiser uploaded still relies on AIPlasticButtons which were removed for 1.5 (http://hg.adium.im/adium/rev/2854e97d7e6b).
