Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-12-28 08:41:28 UTC
When you look at the labels for the wrap features between the toolbar button, context menu and image properties dialog (or the sidebar), they are not consistent. Here are some examples.

Toolbar: Wrap Off
Context: No Wrap
Dialog: None

Toolbar: Wrap Left
Dialog: Before

Toolbar: Page Wrap
Dialog: Parellel

Also 'Wrap Through' and 'In Background' should likely be changed to something more meaningful that people can easily understand like 'Above Text' and 'Behind Text'.

I think this one is perfect to solve when all ideas for wrapping options, and where, have landed ?
Comment 3 Cor Nouws 2015-01-17 16:41:58 UTC
But of course: unifying is good :)
Comment 4 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-08-22 16:48:07 UTC
So changing the wrap labels in the sidebar can be done in sw/uiconfig/swriter/ui/sidebarwrap.ui

Adolfo, Stuart, Sophie, Regina, Heiko: any recommendations on what we should use?

We talked about this some time ago but I dont find the minutes. 

Harmonization +1, and I prefer shorter terms with RTL in mind. So my proposal


That's what we have in the properties dialog, except left/right instead of before/after.
