Bug Description

"A new shape is created by <keycap>drag</keycap>ging on canvas with the corresponding tool. Once the shape is created (and so long as it is selected), it displays its handles as white diamond-shaped marks, so you can immediately edit what you created by dragging these handles."

- not all handles are 'diamond-shaped' on the tools, some are round, some are unrotated squares.

---------------------

"In the Controls bar of the Star tool, first comes a checkbox to turn a star into the corresponding polygon and back. Next, a numeric field sets the <firstterm>number of vertices</firstterm> of a star or polygon. This parameter is only editable via the Controls bar. The allowed range is from 3 (obviously) to 1024, but you shouldn't try large numbers (say, over 200) if your computer is slow."

- *A* checkbox is currently wrong - it's not a toggle button or checkbox, but two distinct buttons.

(That's all I found)

1. Suggestion:
"it displays its handles as white diamond, square or round marks (depending on the tools),"

2. Suggestion:
"In the Controls bar of the Star tool, the first two buttons control how the shape is draw (regular polygon or star)."

The only thing I'd change would be to add an 'n' into 2.) (after draw) ;) - Thanks Nicolas, sounds good!

Thanks for the correction!

Is the status here still correct? I'd change it, but I'm not sure about your workflow, jazzy.

jazzynico (jazzynico) wrote :

@Maren - Yes, the status is correct. It means that the XML and PO files are fixed in inkscape-docs, but that I still have to generate the SVG file for the application and the HTML ones for the website.
I'm going to work on it today.

Ah, well, it should be "Fix released" in inkscape-docs indeed.
