#982 closed Bug (fixed)

The "Clean Up Box" button in Paste from Word is confusing

Description

Pasting from Word...

When I paste from Word... I get the popup box... and it is easy to use...

But some of my users... find the button "Clean Up Box" confusing... because they think it refers to the actual process of converting "word" to "html" (a process of cleaning up the text)... so the users get very confused when it actually empties the box.

Could this button be renamed to: "Empty Box" .

Currently that button is shown only when pasting from word. Maybe we could remove it?

From my point of view it isn't necessary, (the fact that it isn't shown with a paste as text or when we can't access the clipboard and that there are no bugs requesting it means that it isn't a missed feature in those situations), and if we remove it then this problem disappears and people will have one less thing to worry about, the dialog will be easier to use.

If we don't remove it, then changing the string in en.js seems like an easy task.

I have used the button occasionally when I mess up... but it does not matter what happens... if the button is removed or the text is changed.

Yes, that button is confusing. Let's remove it from the interface to make it cleaner. It is supposed to be used rarely (even if very useful in those rare cases), but users can always cancel the dialog if things get too messed up.

I've attached a patch. It removes the button as well as all the related translations. The only missing part here is the what's new entry.
