Code: Select all
v8.40.0111 - 2009-09-25 14:59 - Moved the following submenus from menu View to menu Tools: Tree Style List Style Size Column Format Date Column Format Reason: These are mostly "Set And Forget" options that belong to the configuration department (traditionally located under menu Tools) rather than the View department. Others (e.g. Sticky Selection) have not much to do with "View".
... I would like to request that you please put those items back on the View menu. They don't belong on the Tools menu. They rightfully adjust *view* settings, and that is where people expect to find them. Justifying it by saying that they are "set and forget" items is irrelevant. You can say the same thing about "Default Tab", "Set Home", "Columns", "Auto-Refresh", "Show Items", etc...
It has nothing to do with the frequency of use. They are items that fall within the purview of "View" settings, and it doesn't make sense to put them in any other menu. Right now, XY feels like one of those sliding square puzzles that's been scrambled.
