Hi all, based on the request at tdf#89453 I made a patch for the formats in the paste special dialog. And since this text is on a very prominent position, I'd like to get more agreement.
The new text should follow the convention <descriptive text> followed by the <short name> in parenthesis. For example, "Rich Text Format (RTF)" is slightly better than before with brackets but still not too informative for ordinary users. The most important changes as follows with Old -> New + Comments * Unformatted text -> Plain text (Unformatted) * Bitmap -> Compatibility-optimized image (Bitmap) * Drawing format -> %PRODUCTNAME drawing format * DDE link -> Reference only (DDE link) * DIF -> Text with standardized formats (DIF) * GDI metafile -> Screen optimized image (GDI) + Samuel: needs perhaps also a dash after "screen" + Cor: misleading, it's a vector format, designed for Windows, Windows EMF, that allows for using the Windows GDI, Graphical Device Interface? + Heiko: maybe "Windows vector format (GDI metafile)" * Formatted text [RTF] -> Rich text formatting (RTF) * Formatted text [Richtext] -> Rich text formatting (Richtext) + Samuel: original is good enough (for both) + Heiko: common but not according the convention * HTML (HyperText Markup Language) -> Web formatting (HTML) + Samuel: I would just call this HTML, that's a common term + Heiko: common but not according the convention * HTML format -> Simple web formatting (HTML) + Samuel: What exactly does this do in comparison to the HTML above? + Heiko: no idea, the internal format is SIMPLE_HTML (and it's not shown in the usual list) * PNG Bitmap -> Cross-platform optimized image (PNG) + Samuel: This sounds weird. Maybe "Image (PNG)"? + Heiko: the cross-platform thing might be interesting relation to Bitmap * calc8" -> "%PRODUCTNAME %PRODUCTVERSION Spreadsheet (calc8)" + Heiko: same for impress8 and draw8; calc6 adjusted too + Adolfo: never heard of “calc6” and “calc8”. What do they mean? Could these terms be better? More details at the patch https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/52336/ and the ticket https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=89453 (including screenshots how it may look). The final decision to push the patch should be made in the design meeting next week.
