Indirect action ellipses for Insert Silence and Delete Time menu item names

asked Sep 7, 2016 in Studio One Feature Requests by kitwatson (630 points)
Per just about every known human interface guideline out there, indirect menu actions (those that go through an intermediate step, such as a dialog window requiring an additional user choice or action) should be titled with an trailing ellipsis. I'd like to request that the 'Insert Silence' and 'Delete Time' items present in the Edit menu be re-named 'Insert Silence...' and 'Delete Time...', respectively, to more accurately indicate that the action does not take place immediately upon selection of the menu item, but will instead display a dialog window in which the user must specify the start and end times of the range to be acted upon.

Thank you for the feature request. 

If anyone else agrees or disagrees, then please vote it up, or down.

The developers pay close attention to those that are voted on the most.

Just viewing and agreeing but not clicking on the vote does not help the issue. 

Please click on one or the other.

As a general observation, those functions also work directly, without opening any dialog.   It depends on what's selected at the time and how.
