Scenario

However, it may be easier for end-users to avoid this intermediate menu group. What do you think?


Solution & Questions

I have just described a possible technical solution in the corresponding Support Center thread and wanted to hear from you on it:

Q1: Would you like to enable the proposed transformation for a single menu group by default?



Q2: Which PlainMenuForMultipleMachines option default value would you prefer?

True (1-level menu with group separators)



or

False (2-level menu):

  1. True (1-level menu with group separators)

    Rationale, HCI Principles: Avoid unnecessary clicks, avoid unnecessary menu nesting

    The text "Change status to" should be a Caption to the one-level menu

  2. Single Menu by Default with Group Separators - So much better.
