Enhancement to the arrow buttons in the settings window


Recommended Posts

With this discussion in the AD Windows beta forum in mind I want to suggest a change in behaviour of the arrow buttons that are located in the top left corner of the settings window.

 

Right now they work similar to the arrow buttons in many web browsers. They take you back to where you came from and let you jump forward to a settings screen that was viewed last.

 

Major drawback is, if you haven't been to any screen before, the right arrow button does nothing. Which could leave the impression that something is broken...  :)

 

My suggestion is to make these arrow buttons step forward and backward through all the available settings tabs consecutively.

 

I hope this makes sense. Thanks for listening.

There was some discussion on this when it was being internally tested. I believe it used to scroll through the different categories but something was broken and that is why it goes back and forth now.

 

I personally prefer the way it is now as you can quickly get back to the category you were just in but maybe an option could be added in Preferences to change what the arrows do  :rolleyes:
