Bug Description

Hi Friends,
Small problem, easy fix. This text:

"Object's bounding box"
"Object's rotation center"

should be

"Objects' bounding box"
"Objects' rotation center"

Thanks :-)

I have the feeling that with a plural, the options refer to the selection (Objects' bounding box = selection's bounding box) whereas the singular correctly shows that the action affects each object individually.
But English is not my mother tongue so I'm probably wrong (or maybe I don't understand the arrange dialog...).

Oh, I see what you mean.

In that case, I think maybe it should be

"Objects' bounding boxes"
"Objects' rotation centers"

This might be a case where there needs to be extra text to explain. I wonder if there can be tool tips (hover text)?

Yes, but it needs some code. Maybe for 0.93 (or later in the 0.92.x branch).

I'm going to fix with your suggestions from comment #2 in 0.93 for now, and ask Bryce if it's ok to backport it in 0.92.1.
