PAPERCUT: File filter condition "by filesize" does not state which filesize unit is used

Reported by: alexkovac Owned by:

Keywords: papercut, filters, user experience Cc:
Operating system type: OS X Operating system version: Mountain Lion


When setting up a filter condition using "filesize" user is allowed to enter a number (e.g. 3). This number represents a filesize, but, unfortunately it is not clear which unit is considered. MB/KB/...?

Moreover, if a user explicitly states the unit in the filter condition's input box (e.g. 3MB) the filter condition fails to validate.

SUGGESTION: Either suggest to user which unit is considered when entering filesize, or allow user to explicitly state or choose the unit.

I'm thinking of adding a label "bytes" after the input field.
