Description Calcey QA 2009-09-30 09:59:10 UTC
Reporting against the build hosted on Staging environment. (

It would be better if Reset button is provided in dialog boxes to clear the user entries.
User has to delete the entered text manually.

1) Insert Link dialog 
User has to clear four text boxes to reset the settings

2) Search and replace
User has to clear two text boxes to reset settings

The link and table dialogs now get wiped after the user clicks Insert Link; is that good enough so we don't need Reset buttons? I'm also kind of afraid of button clutter, especially on the S&R dialog.

Unassigning default assignments.
Comment 3 Derk-Jan Hartman 2014-05-09 17:17:16 UTC
We haven't had any complaints about this since it was reported, so I think it qualifies as "good enough".
