Description

It's hard to tell that the subject of the Save, Edit and Delete buttons on the Query form is a custom query.
How about changing it as follows?

  • Save => Save custom query
  • Edit => Edit custom query
  • Delete => Delete custom query

  • Target version set to Candidate for next minor release
I like this proposal for two reasons even though it comes at the cost of adding three new i18n-strings:
  1. it makes it clearer that these three buttons operate at the custom field scope;
  2. plugins can generically re-use these i18n-strings for their own objects.

I’m not sure that renaming these 3 buttons is the best solution. Apply & Clear operates at the same level, why are not renamed to Apply custom query and Clear custom query?

From my point of view, a better solution is a UI one which clearly defines the button as part of the custom query section.

Any other feedback in welcome on this topic.

Clear in Apply is a general term for searching, and I thought it would be easy to understand without adding a subject.
On the other hand, Save, Edit and Delete are hard to understand without the subject.

As far as I know, many people were unaware that custom queries could be saved and reused.
I think it's better to explain in text so that those people can understand the function.

From my point of view, a better solution is a UI one which clearly defines the button as part of the custom query section.

I think it is more effective to have a better UI and linguistic explanation explanation text at the same time.

It's a valid point.
