This comment is only about the file dialogs.
I got the 1:3.1.1-5ubuntu1 package last night, and installed the kde
The "save", "save as" and "export" dialogs have improved. The various check
boxes now have labels, and the "filter" dropdown is populated with text.
Most importantly, it is now possible to actually save the document and get
on with what you were doing...
Remaining brokenness / usability flaws:
* There is a "Automatic file name extension" AS WELL as a "Automatically
select filename extension (.html)". Only one should be needed!
* Only in "Export" and with the "XHTML" filter: The file you export may get
as many as three extensions if the file name displayed in the "Name" field
has an extension and both the "automatic" boxes are checked. Extensions get
appended one efter the other, for example "test.html.html .xhtml" (yes there
is a space before `.xhtml'). (The pdf filter doesn't do this.)
* When you "Save as" or "Export" files, how are you supposed to know that
you have to select the type of file you want to save in the "Filter" select
box? This is (always was) a little unintuitive to say the least. Perhaps
change the label to "File format" or something else.
Thanks to everyone working on this.
