Description

While designing a symbol (marker, line or fill), according to the symbol layer type chosen, in its properties:
  • "Rotation" is used in some cases while it's "Angle" in others
  • same thing for "Border" vs "Outline"
    It could be nice to use unique terms for all the dialogs

Which version does this apply to? Can you give specifics?

Hi Nyall,
I'm on 2.12.0 Trusty Tahr but didn't find anything different when (quickly) check these dialogs in master.
In the symbol selector dialog:
For a Marker Symbol: You have "Rotation" when the symbol layer type is Ellipse marker, Font marker while "Angle" is used for SVG Marker and simple marker
For a Fill Symbol : You have "Rotation" when the symbol layer type is Raster Image Fill, SVG Fill while "Angle" is used for Line Pattern Fill, Gradient Fill

Border is afaics consistently used for Fill symbol. So is Outline for Markers. However I wonder if we're not somehow talking about the same thing. Let's take for example the SVG Fill : the border is what is called outline for SVG Marker but it's just same thing.

So, is this a valid issue? Which terms should be kept:
Rotation vs Angle ?
Border vs Outline ?
According to what's decided, i can propose a PR if no one has time.
