=== Guidelines ===
+
* Use [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Capitalization|title style capitalization]] for the label.
+
* Buttons are not dynamic; their content or labels should not change depending on the context. [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Toggle_Buttons|Toggle buttons]] are a special case where a button has a state.
+
* Don't initiate an action on right-click or double-click cause the user won't expect it.
+
* Prefer using icons on buttons only for ok, apply, cancel like actions. Passive actions like e.g. those in the "System Settings => Application Appearance => Fonts" don't have icons. Don't overboard with icons.
