Description (last modified by zenogantner) (diff)

Currently, applying a patch and creating one is handled by one single dialog.

For better usability, there should be to actions, "patch" and "diff" (as there are Unix command line tools).

  1. It would make finding the "diff" functionality easier - currently, there is only a menu entry 'Patch ...').
  2. It would simplify the dialog for both options (see attached screenshots).
  3. One could give the files to select understandable captions: e.g. "Document" and diff/patch file for patch and "Original file" and "Modified file" for diff.

Have you seen wiki page,

http://padre.perlide.org/trac/wiki/Features/EditPatch

As for naming, much thought went in to.

  • the techie one liner Action, Against, Select File-1, Select File-2 if appropriate and then Process

your suggestions, Document, Original and Modified are ambiguous words :)

Document -> word processing

Original -> belonging or pertaining to the origin or beginning of something, or to a thing at its beginning:

Modified -> To change in form or character.
