More helpful wrench option names


(NomNuggetNom ) #1

I have always been a little fearful of clicking anything in this menu:

Mainly because I don’t know if it will immediately act. For the longest time, I didn’t know how to control whether or not a topic auto closes. I had to have someone tell me to click “Auto Close,” which despite the name, does not auto close the topic. It opens an option menu. As of the recent update, same story goes for Pin Topic. So a simple change:

  • Rename “Auto Close” to “Auto Close Options”
  • Rename “Pin Topic” to “Pin Topic Options”

These would indicate that you aren’t directly performing the action, but you’re opening a menu with more choices.

So rather than that, we should just add the ellipsis e.g. …

IIRC, OS X has one space before the ellipses while Windows has none.
