Remove "window" from menu items


Description scootergrisen 2019-07-02 15:05:24 CEST
The application menu have some menu items with "window" like:
Minimize Other Windows
Roll Window Up
Always Below Other Windows
Same as Other Windows

Maybe there are more.

They seems to say "window" for both windows and dialogs so i guess at least its incorrect for dialogs.

Perhaps it would be better to remove "window" in some cases.

Minimize Other Windows seems to only work for windows and not dialogs so i guess that is correct.
Roll Window Up works on both windows and dialogs.
Always Below Other Windows i cant see this in pre2 so maybe it have been removed.
Same as Other Windows not visible in dialog since "Always on Top" does not work in dialogs.

Its not clear to me if some menu items are only suppose to work for windows and not dialog and why they are visible in dialogs if they are not suppose to work for dialogs.

I think it's a minor, debatable issue, a dialog is also a window.
Comment 2 scootergrisen 2019-07-02 15:31:49 CEST
Maybe a dialog is also a window but "Minimize Other Windows" does not minimize dialogs.
So maybe it was made to only minimize windows or are the dialogs not minimized because they cant be minimized in general?

Does "Minimize Other Windows" try to minimize everything?
