Description David-john Burrowes 2001-09-25 00:01:55 UTC
In the "Debug (full)" toolbar, the "continue" button is placed right next to the "start" button.
This has two problems:
1) The start and continue icons look almost identical, and are therefore easy to mis-identify
2) The continue button seems unnaturally far away from the "pause" button (since the two are closely related, it would seem they should be 
close together).

I'd like to suggest that the Start button be moved over to be alongside the Pause button so as to solve both of the problems just

I hope you meant the "Continue" button. The Start button doesn't 
really belong in this toolbar.   The Pause button is over by
the "action" buttons (step into, step over, pause) - and that's
where "Continue" logically belongs - you'll continue running,
then pause, then continue running, then pause - "Start"'s only
functionality in this toolbar is starting a NEW session (or
killing and restarting the current program) and that's a more
dramatic action than continue. 

So I think you want the "Continue" button moved away from the
Start button, and in particular, put it on the left of the Pause

Tor is very right!  Continue should move, not Start!  (my fingers were clearly typing without talking to my brain when I 
wrote that)

component change: ui -> debugger
Comment 5 Jan Jancura 2001-11-19 18:59:07 UTC
ui freexe so we can not fix it for nb3.3.
we will fix it to NB3.4. 
but for nb3.3 its "as designed"
Comment 6 Jan Jancura 2002-04-15 14:28:16 UTC
we must wait on UI spec.
fix will be simple => M4
Comment 7 Jan Jancura 2002-05-14 10:14:17 UTC
fixed in main trunk

Resolved for 3.3.x or earlier, no new info since then -> closing.
