Re: Guides for dialogs creation: capitalization


Digging through Igor's links, I see the link for capitalization is here, and it simplifies all capitalization decisions into one of two categories, which I like. Lacking a better guideline, I suggest we adopt this for Kicad, effective immediately:


Header capitalization: capitalize nouns and verbs but not articles, conjunctions nor prepositions.

Sentence capitalization: Capitalize the first word only, with few exceptions.

I see that tooltips should use sentence capitalization. Menu Items should use header capitalization, etc.

It is concise and easy to follow, see the link.
