It's really not necessary to add "Filter…" after the name of each filter. We already know that they are Filters, as we selected Filter from the parent menu... The same applies to the Live Filter pop-up menu on the Layers Studio panel. I posted about this for Adjustments as well a while back and it was cleaned up... it would be great to do the same for Filters...

Thanks for all you do!

Well if the main menu category already says "Filter" I agree it's pretty clear those are supposed to be filters then. - Related to "..." it's always good practice and a common indication for a menu entry behavior that will popup a related panel then. So usually all menu entries which do have some associated popup setting panels as operation should have those (...), only those entries without any popup panel related action shouldn't have this. - When ever I see a menu entry with "Some action ..." I would expect a settings panel popup being behind that menu action, since it's an indication for that.

I'll pass this on for you as I can't see an official log for it. It probably could do with tidying up :3_grin:

Thanks Chris and also do include @v_kyrs eagle-eyed observation, as that’s a part of Apple’s UI guidelines: The Ellipsis (...) indicates another dialogue/panel/window will open up before the selected command is executed. Thanks for all you do!

Chris working with the latest beta APH 1.7.110 :

1. The redundant "Filter" label wasn't removed from the Live Filters pop-up menu in the Layers studio....

2. Also, that same pop-up menu is missing the Ellipsis (…) after the filters displaying a follow-up dialogue/window/panel...

That menu does not have a textual label so keeping that will help to clarify them to someone who stumbles on the menu; I would argue that it makes more sense to keep them on that menu.

Agree, those should really be added.

1.7.0.110 when locale is UK has the requested change to the Live Filters popup:

Items in Layer > New Live Filter Layer and its submenus have been similarly edited.

Items in Layer > New Adjustment Layer have been similarly edited.

Items in the Adjustments popup of Layers panel still have no ellipses.
