NatSkin uses

  1. "Preview": preview changes
  2. "Undo": abandon changes but continue editing
  3. "Save": save changes and continue editing
  4. "Cancel": abandon changes and exit
  5. "Quit": save changes and exit

There's no "Quiet Save" in NatSkin.

whereas PatternSkin has

  1. "Preview": same as above
  2. "Checkpoint": this is "Save" in NatSkin
  3. "Save": this is "Quit" in NatSkin
  4. "Cancel": same as above

There's no "Undo" in PatternSkin.

IMHO, Save & Quit is more common consensus than Checkpoint & Save for the same pair of functions.

To clarify that MattWilkie proposed to at least add according tooltips (see TWiki:Plugins.NatSkinPluginDev).

Fixed in SVN 7705. -- MD

"Quit" is not a logical label for a save button. "Quit" sounds more like abandoning, so like saving. Without having tested this on users my intuition tells me a Quit button is disturbing, or at least confusing.

I really like the look of this skin. BUT its a skin, and as a skin must not change features or behaviour. Changing the labels and behaviour is outside the mandate of any skin. If you want to change this such changes must be done in a place common to all skins.

(end of rant).

Additionally "Exit" is better than "Quit"

and ALT-S (save and exit topic) should remain.
