This is a catch-all issue where we can inventory all the minor "paper cuts" present in the UI and track their resolution. No issue is too small. The idea here is that even small annoyances in an interface can add up to an experience that is unpleasant or confusing.

The term "paper cuts" in this context was invented by the team that develops Ubuntu Linux:
https://launchpad.net/hundredpapercuts
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PaperCut

For our purposes let's report anything here as a paper cut that seems small but annoying in the interface for the workbench.

DONE redesign the dialog for selecting an original folder:

  • people tend to click on the Location field rather than the select button
  • make it look more like a standard folder selection dialog

This was done as part of #29.
