Description Tuomas Hietala 2023-03-06 16:36:04 UTC
In LO there's a UI string "Polyline with %2 corners":

However, the context string is "STR_ObjNameSingulPLIN_PointCount". So which one is it, corner count or point count? There's a difference: a polyline with only two points will have zero corners, for example.

Steps to Reproduce:
See above

Actual Results:
It's unclear whether the string refers to points or corners.

Expected Results:
Both the user-visible string and the context string reflect what LO actually does in this case.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

This string can be seen for example in Draw:
1. Open Draw
2. Insert a line
3. Click "Insert point" and click somewhere on the line

I agree "Corner" should be changed to a different word. "Node" is an option, but "Point" is the term used throughout the UI.

Tested in, but was also like this in OOo 3.3.

Hossein, another easyHack I suppose.
