Edit menu items in incorrect positions in Edit menu according to GNOME HIG

Bug #671306 reported by grofaty on 2010-11-05
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

According to GNOME HIG there should be some changes in Edit menu like:
1. Redo should have "Shift+Ctrl+Z" instead of Ctrl+Y.
2. Palette is something very similar to Preferences, so this Palette settings should be the last position in Edit menu.
3. Delesect should be renamed to "Deselect All".
4. "Deselect All" should have Shift+Ctrl+A keyboard shortcut instead of Ctrl+D
5. "Select All" and "Deselect All" should be seperated by line above and bellow.

See attached file.

One more comment:
"Erase Selection" should probably be "Delete" according to GNOME HIG and if you look into Layer menu, there is also "Delete Layer" and not "Erase Layer". So delete is more appropriate.

If you would like to preserve the word Selection (Delete Selection), because there is also an option "Fill Selection" I agree to preserve Selection word. Or think if there is really a need for Selection word at "Fill". Probably is...
