Period at end of lists of filename extensions in Settings

#1 Post by Free4all » 04.05.2015, 22:47

For many of the settings, when the user specifies filename extensions, the syntax appears as:

Code: Select all

.txt.ini.log.
What purpose does that last dot (period) serve? Is it needed?

The only string in language file I could find
36111=Example: .bat.ini.txt.
But even here the last dot is logical.
In all other places all is fine.

Thanks Timon. You mentioned it is logical in that case. Can you explain what you mean?

Also, take a look at all the default extension lists in the settings for the Viewers (Tools>Settings>Viewers>Viewer button); most end with a period.

TIA.

I think it was misprint in exe-file.

On "General" tab that problem have:
- as Image
- as Media
- as Internet/Office
On "Multimedia" tab "Graphic libraries" - "File extensions" have the same problem.

But text Example: .log.txt.ini
has no dot at the end (at least in English version)
You mentioned it is logical in that case. Can you explain what you mean?
"36111=Example: .bat.ini.txt." - if we consider the phrase as a complete sentence, then dot at the end shall be. If we consider as a specific example, it should not be there.

Thanks! So you're thinking that the periods at the ends of all the Settings items are bugs. I'll make the bugreport post.
