Re: Post-Update 6 updates

Actually the ellipsis mean that a requester will appear.

It doesn't mean that:

When a menu item brings up a window or requester, an ellipsis (three dots) should be appended to the menu item's label.

You've managed to disagree with me by posting a quote which backs up what I said. How is that even possible?!

But as far as the *user* is concerned, it means the program will NOT immediately start performing the action, but rather allow the user an opportunity to make further choices or change their mind entirely. (The window or requester is merely a means for that to happen.)

I thought the suggestion was AmiUpdate should immediately start updating files. But if it is just whether it should start scanning, then I guess it would be OK: The scan won't actually perform the update without further user interaction, so perhaps it would be acceptable.

I don't think anybody was suggesting it should update without user confirmation. Scanning automatically saves a click that the user is going to have to do anyway.
