From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0.0+) Gecko/20020518 BuildID: 2002051808 In Composer's Table Cells dialog, Cell Style and Text Wrap are controlled by checkboxes and popup menus that seem redundant: [x] Do something: [ * Go ahead and do it ] [ Well, don't really do it ] This is precisely what a checkbox -- alone -- is for. Using 2 controls to set 1 value (a boolean, at that) seems downright silly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a new Composer page, and insert a table 2. Click in a table cell, and choose Table > Table Properties... 3. Click the Cells tab Actual Results: Both Cell Style and Text Wrap have both a checkbox nad a popup menu to control them. Expected Results: They should only have a checkbox: [ ] Header Cell [x] Wrap Text The Content Alignment controls (Vertical, Horizontal) look like they could use this change, too. (I wonder if there's a Composer UI spec. There are a bunch of other suggestions I'd like to make, especially for this dialog, but I don't want to be haphazardly filing bugs against the program when there's a spec it follows.)

I know this may not be entirely clear, but the checkboxes are there to allow a user to tell us exactly what attributes to change. That is the purpose of the message at the bottom: "Use checkboxes to determine which properties are applied to all selected cells." When the user changes the selected cell with the controls at top of Cell panel, all the attribute states are shown in the dialog. So we need some way for the user to tell us when they intend to change an attribute or not.
