streamlining the "main window" #49
I think the organization of the main window still contains some adhoc decisions on names etc. I want to suggest a little rearrangement (0.8.0-1a):
The first box "Filename/title" could be renamed in "Data set". According to the way the data are organized in PyCorrFit it would be really useful to have both the "Filename/title" and the "Model name" (e.g. T-3D-3D) at the front of the main window. Many times I was not sure why something is not working and then it turned out that I looked at data with different model assignments. "Page info" is still a nice compilation but it is tedious to frequently search for the model in this text.
The Button "Set Range" better belongs to the current box "Fit parameters". Maybe it could be placed just at the right hand side of the button "Apply". It quite naturally improves the workflow. First one has to decide whether a parameter will be varied or fixed, then one may think about the range. (Note that all buttons have the first word a upper case and the following lower case: "Set range" not "Set Range").
I suggest renaming the four boxes of the main window in the following categories:
Box 4. "Fitting options" would even make more sense, when the tool "Global fitting" could be incorporated there. The panel for "Global fitting" is first of all very small and the weighted fit menu of the tool is anyway a duplication from the main window.
