I am designing a settings dialog with multiple tabs for our desktop application. There is a particular (small) group of options that is applicable to two separate tabs in the settings dialog. I cannot combine the two tabs, since there are plenty of other options on the tabs that are not very combine-able.
Thus I was thinking about putting those options that are in common between the two tabs on both of the tabs, so the user can change the options in either place.
Is there a good reason why I shouldn't do this? Is there a better option in this case?
