Feedback on GUI, received via email.

there is no real spacing between the labels and the combo boxes. This means the end of the label is touching the left edge of the combo box. This is not aesthetically how options in dialogs look. It makes the UI look messy because the text appears to run into the combo box

This applies to the language option and the logging level option on the general settings dialog, but may well apply to all other dialogs in NVDA. We need to decide on a spacing here (e.g. 5 px) and use it consistently to separate text from the left sides of combos.

Note that there is no problem with the spacing between check boxes and their labels that are to the right of the check boxes. This seems to be only a problem for combo boxes and maybe other text fields etc. I will look at other dialogs and comment where appropriate.
