Screenshot of print widget and app with comments
There are some HIG problems with the Manage Print Jobs plasma widget:
- Strange register in upper right corner, not clear what it does and no description also.
- Only the description of the printer is shown, but not the name. This is a problem since only the printer name is unique, not the description. Also in the Print dialog one chooses a printer by name, not by description.
Then there is also the print-queue app in which everything is different, this should be uniform.
See also attached screenshot.
It's not a register, it's a switch, as with any switch it's used to enable/disable the printer (It's a standard plasma component, which imo should be like the one on Android that has I and O for on/off).
For the other issues some already have been fixed in master.

Ah, ok didn't notice this component in KDE before (and I don't haven Android either). Is it possible to customize it, e.g. like putting the "play" and "pause" symbols on it?

So they come with 4.10.3?
No, it's not easy to change the component, which is why imo it should have show I and O like android does.
Also no 4.10.3, master is 4.11 as most of these changes break translations...
