The element browser's presentation is not the same in the three parts

  • tree
  • upload form
  • create form

I suggest to change the presentation according to the following screenshots.

Just open the element browser in an image content element (by clicking on the folder icon)

The usability will be approved by

  • not displaying the "display thumbnails" option if no folder was selected
  • using the same paddings around the two lower upload & create folder forms
  • switching the "override existing files" checkbox and the submit button in upload form
  • adding a top/bottom padding to the "override existing files" checkbox
    (issue imported from #M17942)

Very nice catch - I always hated the look of the element browser. As soon as I can use port 29418 I will push another patch set. I removed the left 5px left margin of the headers and idented the file list by 10 pixels (as all other elements in the browser as idented 10px relative to the headers).

Additionally, I aligned the "Overwrite existing files" button, set a margin before the "Create folders" button and idented the thumbnails so that it makes more sense visually.

The three attached screenshot demonstrate that this works in Chrome/Firefox and IE8.

Hi Lorenz,

I've added a review for your patch set. Good work! Thank you very much, especially for your browser screenshots, I don't have the possibility to check in MSIE browsers here. ;)
