Re: file open and create

What if there was only File->Open and you got a file chooser (as now)

We had a similar discussion back in August 2010.

VLC uses a tabbed interface for "Open" (http://www.gnu.org/fry/happy-birthday-to-gnu-sfd-vlc.html) and while it works, I'm not sure it would be simplifying.

is the root of all this evil for Laim that Create does not
express New file enough?

For me, the problem is that "Create > Screenshot" and "Create > From Clipboard" make no sense.  It is not that "Create" doesn't express "New", it's that "Create" expresses an action that is going to start with Nothing and then Invent Something.  "Paste" and "Scan" do not fit this role.

My suggestion from back then still seems reasonable to me:

File -v-
 New ->
   From Template...   [Ctrl+N]
   From Clipboard      [Shift+Ctrl+V]
   Scanned Image...
   Screenshot...
 Create ->
   Buttons ->
   [etc]
