Some UI advice

Postby FreakazoidRobot » Sat Aug 22, 2020 7:59 pm

Under Export, there's no label for the file name or the file location, just an empty input box and a "..." respectively. They should read: File Name: [text box] and File Save Location: "..." so users don't have to guess exactly what those objects are for. Also, in general, the UI does not scale well to larger 4k monitors and can't be changed. The export and "..." buttons in particular are minuscule compared to the size of the input box. I didn't notice either of them existed until I watched a tutorial. Finally, and I know this is a quibble, conventionally file save locations usually are listed after file names if they're in separate fields. It's one of those things that's completely arbitrary, but users will be used to it being a certain way and could get confused if it's backwards from the norm.

Good ideas all but we are limited by the QT5 Python bindings so until the libraries are changed by their developers there are things that are not available to us as application programmers.

Enjoy the Choice :)
