           Summary: the need of some easy user interface improvements in
                    icons, menus, toolbars and panels
           Product: kdevelop
           Version: 3.0.3
          Platform: RedHat RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdevelop-devel kdevelop org
        ReportedBy: edulix iespana es

Version:           3.0.3 (using KDE KDE 3.2.2)
Installed from:    RedHat RPMs

- Many icons in the toolbars, menus and panels are "generic" and/or duplicated. This is a list with the "generic" icons in the interface:
   * Main toolbar:
      - Treeview
   * Build toolbar:
      - Compile File
   * Browser toolbar:
      - Generate a new class
      - Class Browser Actions
   * Debugger toolbar:
      - Many: 4 icons out of 5. The only proper icon is the "Restart the program  in the debugger"
   * The floating debugger toolbar shown when the debugger is active:
      - Many: 9 icons out of 11. The only proper icons are "Interrupt the application execution" and "Set focus on Kdevelop"
   * The "New File" tree tool view icon.
   * The "Frame Stack" icon from the Tool view.
   * Edit menu:
      - Find in Files...
      - Find-Select-Replace...
      - Make Memeber
   * View menu:
      - Tree tool views > All Tree Views
   * Project menu:
      - New class..
   * Debug Menu:
      - Many of them :)
   * Settings > Configure Kdevelop.. > File Selector > Selected actions > Current Document Directory
  About the duplicated icons: In both main and Browser toolbars I can see  "Back" and "Forward" buttons repeated. If two buttons have different behaviours/functions, they shouldn't use the same icon.
 - In Menu 'View > Tool Views' there are 10 menu entries whose titles are simple "Show", without saying what do they actually show. That entries are highly useless without a proper title.
 - The toolbars and specially the main one need separators, they're cluttered.

Note: perhaps should I have sended three different bug reports ?
