TextPipe v10.0 Recent Documents UI

Postby DFH » Sun Aug 28, 2016 12:01 am

With the advent of v10.0 the Recent Documents UI has become a fixed size panel that truncates the paths.

This makes it impossible to know which filter to select when the path to the file is longer than the width of the UI panel.

cf. In v9.9.5 and earlier, the recent files UI panel automatically adjusted its size to accomodate the full path length for all the files.

NB. It's also disappointing that the Filter Library no longer has a Recent Files branch!

Best regards,

David

Yes, the Ribbon implementation we have inherited from Delphi is pretty lacklustre. Hopefully this will improve with our next big upgrade.

We decided to have all recent files in one place - not mixed around.

For now, we will change the MRU to show just the filenames.

If you just show the filenames in the MRU panel, might it be feasible to display each full path\filename as a mouseover tooltip?

cf. What if you have two filters with the same name but on different paths?
This can readily happen during filter development.

Best regards,

David

I did think about using the hint text, and I believe it is possible. Am working on this today.

Any progress?

I see each MRU filter file name now precedes the filter path.

Still severe truncation for long filter filenames. Far from being as good as it was before version 10.
