Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-11-30 16:07:02 UTC
In Calc's context menu, sometimes SID_CELL_FORMAT_RESET is labelled as "Clear ~Direct Formatting" and other times as "~Default" and it would be good to have a consistent labelling of this item.

Hi Jay, Some time ago I understood from Eike that there is (should be) a difference between the menu, that operates on the cell, and the context menu, that operates on text in the cell.  Have you seen that too?
Comment 2 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-12-01 07:05:21 UTC
Yes you are correct, i had forgotten that Eike did give the right explanation about it in bug 81132 comment 27.
Comment 3 Cor Nouws 2014-12-01 10:35:28 UTC
Then still I wonder why both call SID_CELL_FORMAT_RESET.
Probably the function works different depending on the context.
Comment 4 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-12-02 01:02:27 UTC
Yes it is strange to me. Ideally we should change the name from 'Default' to something more understandable like 'Reset to Cell Formatting' or something like that. I noticed 'Default' is used in textboxes in impress as well.

Reopening so the naming of the entry can be addressed.

back to UX-advise, for design/UX review.
Comment 7 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-12-25 10:35:22 UTC
Noticed that Impress/Draw have 'Default Formatting' in the menu and 'Default' in the context menu.
Comment 8 Heiko Tietze 2016-08-23 13:53:12 UTC
Looks like this issue was solved. Context menu always shows Clear Direct Formatting in 5.2.
