Re: Redesign About dialogs, your opinions?

It's same for me. Maybe Bordered dialog would be better since Boxed one take needed space for information.

Maybe all links to sites should go into the menu items?

Web, Forum, Wiki, License, Donation.

I wouldn't touch Web, since it's general information as Email. Forum, Wiki, License (misspelled in Draft!) could go in menu but if is not necessary i.e. if you find a space in about dialog you can put them there. About Donation...hmmm, well it's important but looking other free tools it's not in about dialog...you decide hmm

Re: Redesign About dialogs, your opinions?

Another vote for the bordered one, the boxed approach looks dated.

Re: Redesign About dialogs, your opinions?

eR@SeR, I like your cangelog too.

And about the problem you had posting the message it's just because of the BBCode parser of the forum.
For example, this code (where you can see the characters you tried to use):

[list=*]
[*]1st thing[/*]
[*]2nd thing[/*]
[/list]

Is converted to this:

  • 1st thing

  • 2nd thing


If this software has helped you, consider getting your pro version. :)

Re: Redesign About dialogs, your opinions?

I also noticed that in Shutter there is no 'about' option in the main menu, but you have to right click to the tray icon or F1

it would be nice to see the about menu like in renamer
Here is the screen shot

Re: Redesign About dialogs, your opinions?

I like the "Beta 18" bit. So far the bet number was not known, so people could not know which particular beta they were using.

How about adding the release date just below it?
Also, please provide a Check latest version link just below it.

People can click that link to jump to the product page (not home page).
The same info should be provided at the download web page; so people can compare the version+date directly.

It's no matter for me, so no push from my side...

to open the local "help" (Quick Guide.pdf) file instead of the about dialog... just to be "standard".

Or do you have an reason to do not change this?

Check latest development version of Shutter, it has a new interface and the about option in the main menu.

Also, please provide a Check latest version link just below it.

Release date will almost always be the same date as the last modified date of the executable. You can also see it in the change log on every release. "Check latest version link" is something for the future, when I get a change to finish new web site.

All help links should open associated web pages. Check that you system can open http://... links. The easiest way to do this is to use "Run" from "Start" menu.

Stefan wrote:

I was thinking about it and decided to have F1 as a shortcut to about dialog consistently between all programs. It also provides a starting point for help - link to the web site and email.

Re: Redesign About dialogs, your opinions?

1. The Help>History link does not work. Others work (Wiki, forum, donate).
2. The Wiki link should open the main page of the ReNamer product (http://www.den4b.com/wiki/ReNamer)
