I don't like the text besides the icon, it wastes space. The More dropdown has actions like Primary, Unique, Index, etc. I assume this is Add Primary? This should be clarified.

    About the text, it was decided that this is better for usability. If you don't like it, you can disable this behavior.

    About the action verb, I agree. I'll ask this on the devel list.

     
  • > it was decided that this is better for usability.

    Which usability expert decided that?

    > If you don't like it, you can disable this behavior.

    More switches I need to flip? Too many switches is bad too!

    It was from one of the Google Summer of Code 2010 projects. You can discuss this on the phpmyadmin-devel list.

     
  • Why can't we discuss here?

    I did not say that.... but the mailing list has more subscribers, especially the GSoC 2010 students, so we should get more feedback on the list.
