FS#168 - Edit | Align menu | Center ... in Window

I suggest that Center Horizontally in Window be changed to Center Horizontally in Parent or Center Horizontally in Container.


“Parent”: As I understand it, Koda now considers a control to be in a group if it is a son of a group in Object TreeView.

“Container”: This can mean both son in Object TreeView and what surrounds a control visually in the Form display. This term would allow for Koda automatically making a control a son of a group if it is visually within the group.

“Window”: to me, this is an imprecise term. It can mean any window.

I see here only bug, that this command work with controls inside groups. Or, it can be changed to "Parent", but in this case, selected button in group should center correctly in this group.

You discovered a bug!

I erroneously reported this as a bug. I meant to report it as a documentation-ish problem. I had not tried using the centering feature. I have now: a button inside a group disappears when "Center horizontally in a Window" is executed.

Code: I think that centering should work in a group.

Documentation: "Center ... in a Window" made me wonder "What/which Window?". I also noted the capital "W". I propose "Center ... in container".

But for now, because I am documenting Koda as it is now, I will document as "Center ... in a Window".

Am I making sense?

I think better to make it work with Groups. I still think "Parent" is more obvious term then "Container". Let it be Window yet.

I find "Parent" OK.

Tell me when you change "Window" to "Parent". I will then change the documentation.
