Surface localisation name in italic?

Post #1by Imy » 21.01.2008, 15:36

Hello,


What about an italic font to show surface localisation names when you press Enter? It would distinguish localisation names from space object names...

That seems like a good idea to me, too.

I was thinking about that and i found another way. I don't know if it is better than italic names but this could allow to keep italic font for an another group of names that could appear in the Enter box. For surface localization names, instead of an italic font, why not an asterisk? For instance : *North america. Asterisk would be only a view symbol to distinguish this name as a localization name and not as a real spatial target ; asterisk would have no consequences on alphabetic order.

Wouldn't italic text (for surface localisation) be welcomed for 1.6 version?

It would be more flexible to play with the colours of the text and have a text background with a choosable color and transparency.

I'm not sure of that. In the command line (when you presse enter), colored text backgrounds would not be a discreet graphical solution.
