render combobox value-list of tools over floating windows?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

is it technically possible to let the value-lists of the comboboxes of the tool bar hover over the floating windows, to be able to use the list? To choose between all values? 

 

This would allow to continuously work. No need to "Esc" the combobox, move the floating window away and start over.

 

 

Cheers,

Stefan.

Hi Chris,

 

the issue is still there ... (AD 1.5.4) and happens for e.g. font size, color/swatch/gradient... 

Any chance to get this fixed in upcoming 1.6 ?

 

As long as I have to work on a single screen (MacBook only) it is punishing to move away or reorganize  "my tool menus" to get access for some popUp menus that are not rendered on top of these.

 

 

 

I would really appreciate it,

Stefan

Hey Schubi63,

 

On the Windows version, it is the other way around so I think this is a bug or at least an improvement for the Mac version. I'll get this logged for you.

 

Thanks! :)

Hi Chris, I attached some examples (see my previous post) I experienced with the latest version of AD. The issue is still happening.

 

 

Thanks for your time,

Stefan

Is there any option to use "floating menus" and to not having the problem that UI menus will appear behind the floating menus? Otherwise it does not makes sense to have floating menus. I don't wanna rearrange my menus all the time :/

 

I hoped this issue would be fixed at least in 1.6 - but it's still there. Or I haven't found the correct settings yet?!

 

Thanks, Stefan.
