It would never have occurred to me to quote them either. Layers Dialog without quotes sounds fine to this guy from the USA -- which means that I am a native speaker, not that I am well spoken.

Sorry for the top posting, but IMO, NO inverted commas should be used. Layers dialog is acceptable english usage as is Channels and Paths dialog. I have never heard of the "rule" that Julien refers to, I have never heard of rules, only usage. OwenHi, IMO, we must use quotes when there is a plural, because, in good English, the plural is not possible in Layers Dialog; it must be Layer Dialog or "Layers" dialog ... Colormap Dialog is right. JulienI just had a look at the Table of Contents and noticed that some dialog names are quoted, some are not, e.g. 2.1. Layers Dialog 2.2. â€œChannelsâ€? Dialog 2.3. â€œPathsâ€? Dialog 2.4. Colormap Dialog etc. These quotes seem to be new. Obviously we shouldn't mix quoted and not quoted dialog names. I don't know what's better/correct: with or without quotes? Ulf
