840 - Minor - Attributes/Timestamp checkboxes issue

#1 Post by Dreamer » 09.01.2021, 16:21

Attributes/Timestamp - Operation - tab "Save/load timestamps" 2 options should have radio buttons (o) not checkboxes [v], because just one of these options can be used.

I cannot deny oder confirm.

The help file https://freecommander.com/fchelpxe/en/A ... stamp.html doesn't have Information to this tab. I don't really know what the options are for, because the German translation doesn't seem to fit the English wording.

1st option: The German translation would lead me to believe that all timestamps will be saved in a separate file, the English translation reads such that one would believe that all timestamps will be saved in the file in question.

2nd option is congruent in both languages. For me it reads as if a certain format should be used when saving, which would make this not need a radio button. But as mentioned above, I'm missing information for this tab.

Tab title is "Save/load", so it's clear that first option is to save timestamps from current file to external file, second option is to load timestamps from previously saved external file to current file. This way you can set the timestamps from one file to another. It's not possible to save and load data from the same external file at the same time, it's not even possible to check both options, you can try it, radio buttons should be used here.

BTW Thanks for confirming the other bugs I reported.

radio buttons should be used here
With radio buttons is always one option active - that is not wanted.
One or no option may be active here.
When using radio buttons, you would have to introduce an additional checkbox.

OK, I understand now, it's just unusual to use checkboxes like this, if you check one option, the other option is still available, but if it's checked, first option is disabled, so it could be a bit confusing.

Anyway, moving this topic to Discussion.
