Description beruic 2005-08-09 12:15:08 UTC
I'm pretty new to this so I'm not sure if I've done it right, but here we go:

Generally i think 2.0 looks to become really good (it has a 
great look and feel :), but right now there is some serious userfriendlyness 
problems to take care of. I'll start with a few since i haven't got the tim to 
find more for now.

Machine used for test:
 800 mhz
 224 mb RAM
 Windows 98SE

1. Zoom level adjustment
 - Short version: I want a drop-down box where i can adjust the zoom-level.
 - Long verion: Why do i have to move my mousecursor down to the center area of 
my screen to adjust the zoom level? I would be REALLY GLAD if there was a drop-
down box where i could write or sellect a new zoom-level.

2. Tall things
 - Short version: The buttons, windows and tings in general must be less tall.
 - Long verion: Why are the buttons, and therefore also the windows, so tall? 
When i first ran the program, my resolution was set to 1152x864, and when I 
opened the Customise Toolbar window, it almost filled out the screen hight. So 
i tried to set the resolution to 1024x768 (the resolution which most people use 
today) and then i had no access at all to the ok button in the bottom of the 
Customise Toolbar window. I think this calls for a lot attention.

RE: #1

You do realize that you can do this by right-clicking on the zoom level value in
the status bar?

1. See zoom slider
2. Agree - all dialog windows should have higher aspect ratios, i.e. wider and shorter.
