Hello everybody, :)
Some usability suggestions:
"FFMPEG Early Probe"-button (top right on main window;
Features5.pdf Page 10: 2. FFMPEG Early Probe Explanation):
The tooltip currently shows either "Try FFMpeg first" or "Try FFMpeg
I'd wish it would be more clear, like for example the following
tooltip texts are:
FFMPEG Early Probe: current state is: "Try FFMpeg first"; click to switch to: "Try FFMpeg last"
FFMPEG Early Probe: current state is: "Try FFMpeg last"; click to switch to: "Try FFMpeg first"
- This contains the button name, so I can easily find details in the
- It show the current state and makes it clear, that this *is* the
current state it is showing.
- It shows which effect clicking on the button would have.
"Menu Bar Shell Commands"-button (top right on main window;
Features5.pdf Page 70: 14. Menu Bar Shell Commands):
Currently I don't see that it's configurable (somewhere) and right
clicking does nothing. I'd wish that right clicking would open the
same window as does:
... and give a hint that you can also reach this config window through
Or at least change the tooltip text from "shell cmds" to something
shell cmds; configuration: Settings->Preferences->Interface->Shell Commands
What do you think?
