Edit menu has gone?

Post by matsuda0707 » Fri Jul 02, 2010 7:18 am

Now I am using AB 2010 build 7, and found the Edit menu is not there on the menu bar! (File. View, Bookmarks, Autofil. ... , Help).Why is it removed or is it a bug?

The "Edit" menu should be on the Menu Bar by default.
To get it back should simply be a case of re-enabling it.
But, it looks like there is a bug in that particular setup box.
It appears that the "Edit" option is missing (v2010 builds).
Can you try to reset the bar to default to see if that works:
View >> Customise Buttons >> Menu Bar >> Reset

Mine's the same. The reset didn't work. The EDIT item isn't actually in the list.
Have you got the EDIT item showing, kudos?

I did have because I upgraded from a previous version. I just deleted my settings and restarted Avant and it is now gone.

Could you please explain the reasoning behind that decision?

To Mr.Kudos!
View >> Customise Buttons >> Menu Bar >> Reset does NOT work, and "Edit" menu item itself does NOT exit in the "Menu Bar" tab!
This is very simple, and do not ask us to do such simple confirmation. Other users also reports the same error, and so you shoulf think the problem is there.Do it by yourself.
If you are involved in the development, plrse ask them to fix this in the next build.

Yes the Edit menu is removed as Anderson thought no real important functions inside.Same options can be found from the page's context menu or elsewhere and besides, most users know their shortcuts.

Most users on this board probably know there short cuts but I bet most 'normal' users don't.
There will be thousands of 'normal' users who are so used to using the Edit menu item in other software such as Word Processors for copying and pasting that they will not know how to do it now.
It doesn't matter to me but thousands more will just be confused, frustrated and annoyed.

To Jasmine, "Same options can be found from the page's context menu or elsewhere and besides" is not correct, because the edit menu option is not included in the Menu bar of the Customize buttons. that is , the only wy yo do is to ctrl+C,ctrl+V.

Friends, can't these options be found in the context menu easily?

Yes! My point is, to trigger the Context Menu is NOT easy for some people.
I DO hope AB get rid of this NEW TRADITION...

Keep deleting stuff... Anderson seems to NEVER learn from his mistakes. :-(
