           Summary: Harmonize view object RMB menus in zoom/layout/drawing
           Product: kst
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst kde org
        ReportedBy: nicolas.brisset eurocopter com

Version:           1.2.0_devel (using KDE 3.4.0, compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.4.3
OS:                SunOS (sun4u) release 5.8

When right-clicking a view object, there are currently *three* RMB menu versions according to the current mode (drawing/layout/zoom). This is too much, and quite dangerous as for instance:
- in label mode, the first entry is "Modify..."
- in layout mode, the first entry is "Delete" !

In fact, it is even worse than that as the menus are not always the same for all objects !
I understand this came from the wish to keep them short in some cases (like zoom mode), but personally I believe that the current situation is a real chaos. I wouldn't mind having long menus (after all, when you call the menu you expect to see something, it's not like when it's always visible), especially if they're always the same. After some time, you know where to look and save a lot of time (and blunders).
