I this bug, I report several appearance and usability issues of the filter toolbar. The report is attached as an ODT document. A plain text version of the report follows.

Issues
1.Large field: zoom – as compared to the one of font family and font size
2.Large field: filter name – even larger than the one for zoom
3.Has a 3D-look: Button „Edit“ – compared to the icons in the main toolbar
(a)But: Without 3D-look, the button will not look like a button.
(b)Solution: replace with a pencil icon, or any appropriate icon for „Edit“ function
(c)Candidate icon: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Btn_edit.gif; .
4.Has a 3D-look: Button „Unfold Filtered Nodes“, the one with „+“ icon,

    One more issue: the field with the name of the currently used filter should not stretch to the right. That is, horizontal glue should be added to the right side of the field, which could maybe be done using:

    toolbar.add(Box.createHorizontalGlue());

    Whether that is possible depends on whether the toolbar uses box layout.

    Solved in 0.9.0 beta 16:
    2.
    3.
    4.

    Still open in 0.9.0 beta 16:
    1.

    Admittedly, 1. is not an issue with the filter toobar but with the main toolbar, and is not a regression issue.

    Ideally, all the input fields - zoom, filter name, font family and font size should have the same size. In beta 16, each one has a different size: zoom is the biggest, font family and font size smaller, and filter name the smallest. The best size seems to be the one of font family and font size input fields; zoom is too big for sure.

    Environment: Windows Vista, Java 1.6.

    Let me allocate the number 5. to the issue "the field with the name of the currently used filter
    should not stretch to the right. ".

    In 0.9.0 RC6, 2., 3., 4. and 5. are solved; 1. remains. But 1. is not a regression issue, is uncritical, and is unlikely is get fixed in 0.9.0; othes subissues have been solved. I am closing this issue consisting of five subissues.
