Make dopesheet filter labels consistent

Authored by Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) on Fri, May 15, 12:32 PM.



There are three different label styles for the three Dopesheet filter labels:

  • "Only Selected", so no "show" or "display" in the label at all.
  • "Display Hidden"
  • "Show Errors", so no "only" in there to indicate it will hide all the non-error channels.

This commit changes:

  • Always use the word "Show", not "Display". I don't care either way, but IMO this should be consistent.
  • Always use the word "Only" when enabling the filter hides everything else.

Something like :

Show Selected
Show Hidden
Show Errors

sound that it could work?
now what does it show when none of them ?
maybe this is the moment to do a bigger change and make it a pop over for filtering?

That would require changing default values and flipping the meaning of some of the toggles. Some options remove things from view ("Only Show Selected" hides everything except stuff from selected items), but "Show Hidden" adds things to the view. That's the difference between "Only Show" and "Show".
