Subject: Re: Recorder experimental new UI, Sound Sliders andlargerTetrissource code
From: Andreas Stemmer (Andreas.Stemmer_at_web.de)

I'm not sure why, but I find it more intuitive the way it is now (volume
UP/DOWN, next/previous song LEFT/RIGHT). But the remote controls of most tvs
are different, they have volume LEFT/RIGHT and program UP/DOWN.

It's really a strange problem and mainly dominated by feelings and emotions.
I really like the vertical sliders in the sound menu, but it's difficult to
clearly describe their function (AVC is not enough), therefore I prefer the
horizontal sliders, even if they bring some inconsistency, but I would not
change the up/down/left/right behaviour in the wps.

Another question: would vertical text be possible?
