If you found an area that was unclear or is not even covered in our HIG, tell us about it. We can be reached on the kde-guidelines mailing-list.

Conventions

Following is a set of guidelines to ensure the HIG itself is consistent.

Terminology

  • Use the word Control, not Widget to refer to a user interface element. Rationale: "Control" is more widespread outside the UNIX community. It is also reasonable to expect more and more applications will be written using QtQuick and QtQuick controls in the future.
  • Use check box and combo box, not checkbox or combobox.
