Description Stefan Knorr (astron) 2012-08-18 17:46:28 UTC
Despite pictures and video/audio being very similar, there are currently two separate menu entries for these types of media in the insert menu. We could combine those two to Insert > Media... to simplify the menu.

So it doesn't seem a bug but rather an enhancement proposal.

I'm going to mark this as NEW as it is a valid request, now if we implement it depends on the discussion by UX. 

@UX team - if you decide that we will not do this one, can you close this as WONTFIX?

New (Confirmed)
Enhancement (as stated, not a bug)
Low(doesn't really add much, just makes the menu a little simpler)


@Devs - please don't implement this until UX team has said go ahead or if you do, before submitting please check in with UX team

Joel, I am one of the UX guys, and we brought this idea up during one of our weekly chats.

lol Astron, I know you are part of the UX team ;) I think I just was burned out going through bugs my mistake! I'm sure you all have it under control :) Doing this seems incredibly simple, maybe I'll tackle it in the coming weeks

What about the "Scan" menu entry? (Insert > Picture > Scan ) ? I do agree with the point of view of a merged "Media..." menu entry.

Kind regards,
Comment 6 Joel Madero 2013-09-25 14:15:34 UTC
Okay, taking this one. Will also merge scan into it
Comment 7 Joel Madero 2014-02-27 22:55:20 UTC
In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.

Thank you and apologies for the noise
