    Problem

     

    Buttons and popover buttons in button bars are slightly different to their equivalent objects on the layout.

     

    Idea

     

    • It should be possible to specify the name by calculation for [popover-]button also for buttons not in button bars
    • It should be possible to drag and drop [popover-]buttons interchangeably between button bars and layouts (bb->bb, bb->lyt, lyt->bb, lyt-lyt)
    • It should be possible to change a layout button into a layout popover button, and vice versa.

     

    Benefits

     

    • Better UX
      • more consistent
      • user not forced to use a button bar
      • Mistakes can be more easily corrected (no Gotcha)
    • Less overhead
      • Layout is more efficient / faster
      • Easier to style buttons without button bars
    • Greater productivity

     

    Use Cases

     

    • Layouting
    • Correcting accidentally chosen wrong button type
