Summary0001229: The "Delete selected layer" and "Delete all layers" buttons are too similar
DescriptionThe two buttons are almost identical. I have seen a lot of users accidentally delete all layers (and vice versa).

Furthermore the left most button is "delete all". IMHO the more intuitive option is "delete selected" on the left, which follows left to right reading convention.
Steps To ReproduceOpen Monteverdi, load 2 images and ask a new user to delete one layer only.
TagsNo tags attached.

I think this is more a feature request than a bug.

Since there's no graphics designer in the OTB team, tcons are picked from OSGeos SVN repository [1].

Icons order could be switched if desired. Let me know and I'll do it.

I think that the real issue is that we should have a confirm delete pop-up dialog such as when quitting Monteverdi when deleting all layers and, perhaps one layer.

A right-click contextual menu proposing redundant (and not replacement) actions such as proposed in request for comments 0000033 [2].

We might also add a 'Layer(s)' menu-item in the main menu-bar proposing redundant actions.

This would improve user accessibility to features.
