For a long time the Synfig Studio was famous as an application with a weird and exotic terminology. Since the version 0.64.0 it was decided to get rid of the weird words in terminology by replacing them with the most commonly used by other software.

The changes are:

  • Duck -> Handle
  • Curves Panel -> Graphs Panel
  • Encapsulate -> Group
  • Paste Canvas / Inline Canvas layer -> Group layer
  • Group -> Set
  • Add/Remove from Group->Add/remove from Set
  • BLine -> Spline
  • BLine Point -> Spline Point
  • BLine Tool -> Spline Tool
  • Params Panel -> Parameters Panel
  • Children Panel -> Library Panel
  • CPoint -> Color Stop

As of February 2013 we have all English pages updated/rewritten for the new terminology. Now we need to get translations updated.
