"Category tree successfully imported into XnView categories"I'm fine with your suggestion and changed it above. Do you also agree, XnTriq?vertigo wrote:I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I think it would sound better as "Category tree successfully imported..." or "Category tree has been sucessfully imported..." Using "was" here just sounds like it "was" done earlier vs "just now" when the import action was performed. Thoughts XnTriq?

It is about consistency...
[When an action is selected from the browser rather than the viewer, isn't it possibly normal and implicit that it can also be applied to multiple selected images?? ]

"Rebuild embedded EXIF thumbnail"Right, the "thumbnail(s)" would be 100% correct. But using the plural makes things less clear, e.g. "Rebuild embedded EXIF thumbnail(s)" sounds as if there could be several EXIF thumbnails in one image file that are rebuilt. Last not least there are some labels in singular, already, e.g. "Edit comment..." or "Change timestamp...". So I wonder whether all labels should be in singular (as if one file was selected)?vertigo wrote:Not sure if this is applicable to a single file or possibly multiple files, but if it can be multiple, then just as with the previous item it should be "thumbnails" or "thumbnail(s)."
O.k., so we decide for now that in XnView browser menu items that can be applied to both a single file and multiple files singular is used (e.g. "image, file, ...").cday wrote:XnTriq wrote:

- Join images...
- Split images...
In Join images... "images" must necessarily be plural, but Split... can be applied to a single image, or to multiple selected images...
So should the text be Split image... or Split images... (or Split image(s)... ) ?
When an action can be applied to a single file or to multiple files, isn't singular the norm?
