Description Miloslav Trmac 2003-02-12 15:45:20 EST
printconf-gui currently (8.0.93 + RHN) uses the string "About" in two
completely different places:
* Help/About
* As a heading for a frame around other input controls in a printer properties
These two meanings are quite different (Czech translation of Help/About
usually is "About the program" literally) and it is difficult to create
a good translation fitting both.

A simple fix would be changing Help/About to Help/_About
(adding an accelerator key). Then the two different meanings would
get different strings.

Good idea.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2003-04-07 06:27:03 EDT
Help/About is now Help/Contents.
