Hi Petr, hi Rainer,

great to see new guys on the Design list :-)

Hi ,

you might want to look at . The menu icon for
grid enabled/disabled is confusing. We would like to use a normal check
box instead. I hope that it does not break any design rules ;-)

Well, it does :-) Here is the (very short) OOo spec how Menus are
styled, along with the description of checkmarks vs. images:

Concerning the issue, I can confirm some weird behavior in LibO 3.3.1 -
but, everything is fine in OOo 3.2.0 (quickly checked). I don't know why
"we" cause this issue ...

Furthermore, there might be an additional issue when using one of the
newer Linux distributions, since Gnome decided to deactivate the images
in the menus. Thus, the images have to be replaced by real checkboxes,
although the specification above is different in this case.

So, how to continue? Could anyone please check with a more recent OOo
3.3 - maybe on different platforms?

Petr, might it make more sense to continue this discussion in the issue


PS: I had to moderate this mail, so - if anybody joins to answer, please
CC all guys.
