Usability: Delete single/multiple file(s) confirmation

Post by *Lefteous »

When deleting a single file the filename which is about to be deleted is displayed inside the main text. For more than one file the filenames are displayed below the main text.

Suggestion: Always display the filename(s) below the main text.

Why would this be better?
- It's easier to recognise as users don't have to extract the filename out of the main text.
- It's easier to read because it's always displayed at the same location

Handling a single file is a really important case because of the way focus and selection works in TC. This is especially true for the delete function.

I've changed all LNG strings that show filenames (delete, repack to archive, long names etc etc etc) in order to separate names from text some years ago. :)
