Suggestions for a UI improvements

Post by DFH » Wed Apr 29, 2020 5:58 pm

Would it be feasible for the UI to be improved to provide an optional full-window view of the currently selected filter?

This would make editing easier for filters.

Think how YouTube videos can expand to full-window and back to normal.

There's always plenty of room in the grey header bar of a filter to provide a suitable icon to click.

cf. The UI in Protonmail has a similar facility in compose email.

Best regards,

David

Further to my earlier suggestion:

How about also making the Filter library a detachable side-bar ?

i.e. Like the side bar in Xiphos - the free Bible study app from xiphos.org (available for Windows & Linux).

Allowing the filter library to detach / attach would provide more real estate for working with a filter.
The filter library would retain full functionality even while it was detached in a separate Window.

Alternatively, the Filter Library could be compressed to a narrow vertical bar with just an expand symbol showing at the top.

Best regards,

David
