[0.17.7] Naming inconsistency between toolbar and 'controls' settings

Post by Jonathan88 »

TL;DR
In the toolbar, the extended info mode is called “Alt-mode” in the 'controls' settings it is called “Show info”

What ?
I think neither of these are very good names - especially "Alt-Mode": I don't have it bound to 'Alt', so to begin with I didn't know what it meant.
"Show info" is also not particularly descriptive.
I propose "(show) extended info" in both places instead.
Why ?
The naming should be consistent to avoid confusion (in this situation it could actually confuse people, not just annoy pedants like me!)
FactoriOh No: when it's accidentally 2am, again

+1 though I have no idea what a good name for this would be. "Show extended info" doesn't really convey its meaning either.

This has been implemented. Both are called “Alt-mode” now.
Mods: Shortcuts for 1.1, ick's Sea Block, ick's vanilla tweaks
Tools: Atom language pack
