Description Janis 2006-05-31 16:39:36 UTC

Not sure if it is not intended, but it appeared odd to me that a section in
users preferences is titled "Files" although the options there are about
displaying images.

I know this is editable in the language files, but still I think it is not the
correct solution. The variable is called "files" so the translation is meant to
be a meaning of "files" in English.

Thank you for pointing out the other bug report, but I wouldn't want to agree
that this is a duplicate of that one.

I'm not talking about a namespace, but merely about one particular language
variable, which appears as a title for a secion (a tab) on the user preferences

The two options for setting the maximum size of an image and a thumbnail size
are clearly about displaying images, so I don't see why they should come under
title "Files", which is, in fact, even misleading here.

Why are you marking my report resolved/invalid without even a reply?! Are robots
here "fixing" bugs?
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-05-31 22:11:23 UTC
Non-image filetypes will also be covered by options in this 
Comment 5 Janis 2006-05-31 22:38:02 UTC
OK, thanks for the answer!
