CLOSED Build 9204

Recommended Posts

Win 10 1809.

Beta update installed ok.

Not keen at all on the collapsible Settings part of the GUI which is like that every time you reboot.

Why have you done that??

Settings: all sections will have a closed state by default on a2start process start (not on UI close/open)
Scan:  all sections, except the 'scan computer/current scan' section, will have a closed state by default on a2start process start (not on UI close/open)
 
This is to not overwhelm users with a long list of settings initially.
Please note that settings is the least used panel for most of our users.

Hmm.  In Settings,  I think it's odd that you can click on one of the top underlined section names and have that named section open, but you can't click it again to get the section to shut.  It's also odd that while clicking on those top section names does open a section, clicking on the large (white on black, here) tab titles has no effect.  I see (just, seeing as they are in a faint grey on black here) that you can also click the  sections' up/down arrows... but they're way over on the rhs of the window, and hard to see.  What happened to the idea of keeping things one might want to mouse over all close together - eg why not put these up/down things at the lefthand side?

This all seems like a backward step from the tabs we used to have.  Wasn't one of the reasons for getting rid of tabs meant to be so that everyone could see everything on one big list?  And now you want to hide sections of it to make it less confusing?  Why not just bring back tabs?  At least they worked in an easily-understood way.

You will also notice that all the content panels are now scrolling pages, similar to websites. This particularly improves handling when using touch screens and further blurs the line between desktop and web apps.

Do you not think it might be an idea to make the drop down symbol at right hand side white like the words are?

Grey on black is hardly visible, and you may get folk clicking on the actual word to see whats there instead.

makes sense. in the bright GUI, it's much more clear.
Btw we did not change anything here, we just close the sections by default now.

Please note that most users will never open this panel.

But for those of us that do open it it would be nice to have them white :)

It makes the GUI design look unfinished

You can double click on  any closed section to open them. Double click closes. 

We'll change that to single click to avoid any RSI  :P

> You can double click ...

Ooh!  So one can.   It's funny, I never thought of trying it... but that's because the other things one can click on in that screen respond to single click.  So if you do change these to work the same way that will help, I think.
