Verion 7 UI Questions

Post by Arnold » Tue Dec 12, 2017 1:20 am

Some of the titles for the icons in Ribbon UI mode are rather long. In the Command Properties for the icon there is a place to specify a short title, but it seems to be locked. Is there a way to enter a short title, and would it then take the place of the regular title below the icon?

The Properties Toolbar when using the Standard Toolbars expands to the left when an object is selected. It causes the default toolbars to collapse. Created toolbars do not collapse, the Properties Toolbar itself collapses instead. The toolbar on the far left is one I created. Is it possible to have created toolbars collapse like the default ones?

Hello Arnold,

For now, the title customization is read only. I can provide the short title for the Combine Files command though - it will be available from the next build.
Alternatively, you can turn off the Command text lables:

Thank you. How about the 2nd part of my post. Is it possible to make toolbars I create collapse like the default ones do when the Properties toolbar expands to the left?

Hi Arnold,
Could you please go to File> Export settings and send me the settings file so that I can try to replicate this behavior and get a better idea of what is happening? A video would be helpful too.

Thanks!

Thanks Arnold,

I've asked Vasyl, the lead UI developer, to take a look at this and advise why this behaviour is what it is, but normally we have always assumed that the properties toolbar would be on a row of it's own, or the last one on a row, so it adjusting relative to available space is expected.
Why the custom ones do not shrink is a question I can't answer directly - hence me forwarding it higher up. In the mean time - have you tried to manually hide the text on some commands? You can do that by right clicking on any tool on any toolbar and deselecting the "show text" entry:

Stefan

I have the properties toolbar as the last one in the row and I have all text labels shut off in toolbars in UI Options. There would be enough room for the Properties toolbar to expand as far as needed if the tool bar I created (on the far left) collapsed like the default ones that come with the program.

Thanks.

I figured out one way to do it. I moved the icons from my toolbar to the Edit Content toolbar since I had already added the 2 original icons to the Comment toolbar. Properties toolbar has plenty of room now.

Hi Arnold.

Thanks for your detailed explanation. We found reason of that trouble and will try to fix it in the next release (approx. at the end of January).

Best
