@John_Brock, i am not a professional cook, but even on my stove there are always several pans and pots steaming and sizzling simultaneously so pls guys get the windows version out soon that we macies get something to play with either
@stevebaer that sounds to me like its cooking pretty well already i suddenly can smell a wip 6 chiming up hopefully not too far from now, i sure am ready to take a little bite
another thing which i wanted to point out when tabs got introduced, something which maybe could get a new thought when thinking again about Rhino 6 for Mac. it sadly got ignored completely at first, maybe it was the wrong time but pls have a look at this concerns because place is crucial:
starting with tabs which take a substantial amount of space away, seen as in Nr. 3 on the diagram which i made around a quick screenshot from @dan ’ movie --> only 2 tabs are open containing only 2 short words or lines still they cover the whole width of the screen.
talking about wasting area generally for Area Nr. 1 in the diagram could be eradicated completely, not only Rhino has this problem but many other applications as well take it for granted that this should be an acceptable loss of space which usually contains only one tiny little title but using a whole bar length for this. there are many applications which have done this aside, not only in full screen.
yes sure that can be avoided in mac rhino by going to full screen, just full screen has this terrible issue as some may be bothered with also, that its not possible to quickly navigate between several applications without those annoying and delaying blend over animations and other reasons.
Nr. 2 has at least a few words and yes you can switch this off but in the current state, its wenn shown still quite a waist of area.
Nr. 4 i did not manage to hide this, at least for me and maybe for others, completely obsolete feature. i mean for clicking on some views having 4 words displayed and again using the whole width of the screen. maybe somebody uses this even though its such an obsolete feature in my opinion… but even some may use this, at least let the people collapse or disable this loss of space.
Nr. 5 deals with a similar issue here for a few coordinates and a history which could be nicely integrated to the sidebar again the whole width of the screen is waisted.
now if you take all those together and see what i am talking about we soon have nothing to work on anymore… sure those with 30 inch screens can laugh, but thats still no reason not to use all given space sufficiently for working and concentrating on your model.
i saw somebody wanted to make a complete minimal custom skin for windows which lets you hide away everything expect the viewport, since customizing does not work yet and maybe can come in Rhino 6 i still want to underline the importance of user experience. there are power users i am sure who need nothing more then a few short cuts a decent mouse with macros or whatever they use and a command line to work with. other areas can be displayed anyway but at having the option for a clear and cleaned up sufficient workspace would be more than interesting.
maybe something to think about?
