Comparison of current and proposed layout for Print dialog
Question about dropping "More Options" button in Print dialog and moving its single option into the print dialog.
Attachment shows proposed design. Three specific changes are proposed (and identified by number) in the attachment.
Reasons for changes:
1. Control hidden in More Options is highly relevant to the Collate option and makes sense to have it located next to each other, rather than hidden in "More Options"
2. Removes extra step in workflow.
3. Seems like "overkill" to have "More Options" and only one control.
"Reverse order" is not depending on the number of copies as it would look like without the "Order" label. And not much benefit from removing it.
No objection to separate jobs under collate although it makes the dialog even larger. The options button with one checkbox is in fact awkward.
We discussed the proposal in the design meeting. Moving the one option out of the More dialog makes sense, better as first option. But the label Order should remain and the Collate option also right of the number of copies.
Guess you volunteer to do it yourself, Seth. Otherwise I would add code pointer as this is likely an easy hack.
