I seriously wonder about the QA process at McNeel that rushed R6 to official release with so many usability issues?
Here’s what I’m seeing - it starts well enough:
I click install and get the Yak dialog window, then try to take a screen snapshot of it (to paste to GIMP) and the next thing that happens is I’m unable to return to the Yak dialog, no matter what I do! Alt-Tab and all other tricks I know fail to return focus to the Yak dialog so I can click “Close”.
This second screen shot was accomplished by hovering the mouse over the Rhino/Yak mini-previews in the Windows 10 task bar, which don’t appear in the image:
Finally, I clicked the “X” to close the taskbar mini-preview for the Yak dialog (which works) but the first dialog remains with “Install” and “Close” options. I click “Close”, your GH file opens, but clearly missing most of its code, indicating no plugin installed?
The focus issue might be related to a very old R5 annoyance that hasn’t changed in R6. If there are Rhino dialogs placed over the GH canvas, they don’t disappear when you click the GH canvas!? Grrr… One must click the GH window title bar to make them hide in the background.
P.S. I closed the file and re-opened it, skipping the screen shots this time and clicking “Close” in the Yak dialog. It closes but the missing plugins dialog remains. I click its “Close” button and get the same results as before!? No code, no plugin.
Is putting out code like this a tradition at McNeel? I love a lot of what I see in R6 but wow, I’m seeing stuff like this at every turn. It’s asking a lot for paying customers to be diverted with QA distractions like this.
