Description Karl 2010-10-09 21:56:30 UTC
Version:           3.6 (using KDE 4.4.5) 
OS:                Linux

I figured this out - to change an "available Channel" to a "Visible Channel" is quite simple - just drag. But nothing hinted to this function. 

I left-clicked, Right-clicked, center-clicked, hit tabs and arrow keys with no joy.  Resorting to Google I found many others also puzzled with the interface.

The text on the Configure-kmix dialog says:

"Configuration of the channels."

If the text instead said:

"Configuration of the channels - Drag icon to update" 

All would be wonderful. 

Reproducible: Always

Confirmed, it is not obvious for Joe User how to change an "available Channel" to a "Visible Channel".
