EG stuff that bugs me...

Post by zian » Sun Oct 01, 2017 2:56 pm

Feel free to add your own. If there is such a thing. lol

One thing that bugs me is... when I double click an item in the left pane/log to find the same item in the right pain/eg tree... it freaking expands everything that leads to that. When I may do my next tweak all that info on the right is still expanded. It bugs me so I have to click 10 or 20 more times to make it compact again.

Not a big deal... it just bugs me.
I have more.

What bugs you?

that is done by design, so as an example. if an event gets triggered and you want to go to the macro that the event ran. then you would double click the macro icon in the log and it would select the macro in the tree. and the only way to select the macro in the tree if it is not visible is to make it visible first

I know.
It works great for that.
I want auto re compact button for after the fact.

Like Minimize All.
Instead of 20 clicks to compact it again.

Just me dreaming... complaining my man.

Also...
for nearly 20 years my desktop short cut for EG was a green arrow/pointer. It was perfect. It was good. I liked it.

Now it's a silly little ghost icon.
I miss the green arrow. lol
It was easier to see too.

ya know. i didn't change that. and i do not remember any changes to the core code that could have changed that. not sure what happened there. maybe we can add an option to use a new style icon and the old one. going to have to be put onto the back burner on that one got other pressing things to attend to. But we are also a community. I think we should put it to a vote. for this release of EG anyways. until i can sort out the whole choosing of the icon.

what ya think?

No need for a vote man.
No need for fixing / changing a thing.
I'm just complaining. It's my newest hobby.
I might even go pro.

But adding shortcuts and little buttons should be doable (in 0.5.1 :wink: )

I still don't know how it changed. I never saw a pull request for the change.

:oops: :oops: :oops: uuhm, that was me! I changed it to the ghost icon. If you don't like it, then i will revert it. I just thought that the Ghost makes more sense because of the name EventGhost. :wink:

pull request is online.

On a virtual win7 system it works, but not on my desktop win10 machine. There i had to choose it manually (both icons are included in the exe).

Perhaps, it will be the beter solution - allow the user to choose preferred icon? (just click "browse" and to choose *.ico file)
It could be also stored in a profile, so when you open a profile (with specified icon) - application icon (in title bar, in tray and all other places) automatically would change...
Sin©erely yours, Neytrino.
