           Summary: Auto-resize for labels: improve usability
           Product: kst

          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist

         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

Currently, newly created labels by default do not auto-resize for text. What's more, the "Margin" spinbox is not disabled when the auto-resize feature is disabled, whereas it doesn't make sense in that case.
I suggest the following improvements (please don't tell me they should be separate reports!):
1) move the "Margin" spinbox closer to the "Auto-resize for text" checkbox 
2) disable the "Margin" spinbox when it does not make sense
3) change the "Auto-resize for text" checkbox to radiobuttons "Fit box to text", "Fit text to box", "No fit"
4) (less important) remember the "fit" settings used when creating the last label

Barth, I think point 3) solves the concern you expressed in the discussion on the mailing list in an elegant way.
