That doesn't seems logical to me, as the comments are not really against the proposition, more the contrary even. I would just discuss further the issue in the ticket itself (otherwise don't forget to link this discussion in the ticket's comments).Ticket #2830 Since you can change the default application and permissions of a file in the Get Info panel, the name isn't really adequate. I propose "Properties". Can we keep the short-cut ALT+I ? I dunno... Axel responce: IIRC Mac OS X has the same problem. Maybe we could just remove the "Get" to be able to keep the shortcut.Keep as is and close the ticket.
In my opinion, a 'properties' item at the bottom of a context menu is just the standard everywhere, not only for file managers, but in every piece of software. I admit i rarely use a mac, but where is it placed in the menu? And is it called 'get info' in every software?
Concerning part of my comment in the ticket, now that i use Haiku very often, i'm still not used to the current situation. And i know there is the shortcut (which can stay alt-I btw), but it's not really a reason to make the mouse usage unpractical.
My last arguments on the matter :) Best regards, Alex
