Why transparency options in find-and-replace dialog?
why are the transparency options for the find-and-replace dialog in that same dialog? Why not in the ordinary settings dialog? Is there really a number of users not sticking to one setting, but changing it a lot?
As for me, the transparency options could be removed from the dialog and be put into the ordinary settings dialog. That would make the dialog less complex and less multi-topical.
I agree. I rarely (read: never) adjust it. The less stuff in the Find/Replace dialog the better (this applies to lots of other dialogs too). It is very easy for dialogs to get very “busy” and distract a user.
Good to hear I’m not the only one feeling like this.
