Description Thomas Lendo 2017-10-02 14:02:09 UTC
When working with the functions list in the Customize dialog (new or old version) then the user is stumbling over many names that are identical or near-identical (e.g. a singular and a plural name like "Field" and "Fields" or near-identical like "Center" with 4 entries and "Centered" with additional 2 entries).

That makes the searching and working with commands confusing.

I would suggest to rename all dupes or near-dupes to have a better visualization of the command. Or at least to have readable descriptions for every command so that the use knows the context of the command.

Some more examples:

"Decrease" is the functions list name for "Decrease Indent", "Decrease Size" and "Decrease Paragraph Spacing".

There are 2 "PDF" entries which means "Export as PDF…" and "Export Directly as PDF…". But there exists entries for "Print" and "Print Directly". So why not rename the second "PDF" to "PDF Directly" or both to "PDF export (directly)" or something else.

There are 2 entries named "Footnote or Endnote..." and 2 entries named "Footnotes and Endnotes...".

The English list (that I've added to a new menu to remember them) is:
