#759 closed defect (fixed)

Renaming of Close / Close Chat

Reported by: MEMark Owned by: nobody
Milestone: Adium X 1.0 Component: Adium UI
Version: Severity: minor
Keywords: menus, tab, window, naming Cc:
Patch Status:


This is not a bug. And not a feature request. Maybe a litte bit of both. :)

In the File menu, Adium has two items:

Close shift-cmd-W

Close Chat cmd-W

  1. When there is only one active tab/chat, I think Close Chat should be dimmed out. Close then becomes Close cmd-W (without the shift key). This also applies when there is no tab at all (via user preference).
  1. I had to think carefully when trying to figure out how Close and Close Chat were related. I think the first one should be named "Close Window".
  1. Even if a "tab" is in fact also a "chat", I think we should stick with the official (sort of) name for the UI item, i.e. "tab". A tab is well defined, a chat somewhat less, and could refer to both the window as a whole and a single tab.

This is not just personal opinions, but actual behaviour of Apple applications i.e. Safari 2.0.

Sorry in advance if you've just been too busy. But did I forget to set some field, was it forgotten along the way, or simply deemed uninteresting?

Milestone: Adium X 0.84

We get a lot of tickets, sometimes they get overlooked. I'll slap a 0.84 milestone on this for the time being.
