UI inconsistency

Recommended Posts

Thanks for update to 1.6, but contains minor discrepancies.

 

a) Stabiliser is perfect tool.

In Pencil Tool, Vector Brush Tool, Paint Brush Tool, etc. is controlled by checkbox/buttons with tooltip (good way).

In other tool (Blur/Sharpen/Erase Brush Tool, etc) is controlled by combobox without tooltip.

Why is different?

 

b) In Pencil Tool is Controller before Stabiliser,

in Vector Brush Tool is at the end of toolbar.

These are unnecessary discrepancies, which make the operation more difficult.

 

 

c) Font listbox is perfect.

In Light theme is light,

in Dark theme is .... light?

d) Lock and Unlock Aspect Ratio has the same Tooltip.

"Lock/Unlock Aspect Ratio" would be more appropriate, but the lock symbol is not very obvious.

I believe this is the way to go. A dark background and light letters would be hard to read. Also, I love the dark theme. :P

Best regards!

"A dark background and light letters would be hard to read".

In dark theme are light letters on dark background all over everywhere, but that's what it is dark theme :-)

 

There is no problem with readability for me.

(it is only fast invert light font list, favourites icon and group arrow need to lighten).

I guess you mean something like this quick Mockup:

I know it'd be darker, but I think the way it is works really well.

For dark interfaces, some white backgrounds work well as a contrast element, like the Menus on a Mac.

Best regards!

I am OK with "Lock and Unlock Aspect Ratio" tooltips, the only thing I need it to be changed is the lock icon. Currently, the only thing differentiates it with the "unlock" state is two thin lines.
I need more contrast differences, maybe bolder color for "locked" state, green or red color will work perfectly I think.

Color is not a good solution, because the color is used only for tool icons and can still be turned off.

It would be enough highlighting, like disable/enable brush editing.
