deskrule beta with vertical UI

Post by nikos » 2020 Aug 13, 08:49

I added an option that makes deskrule search toolbars vertical instead of horizontal, see if you like it better? Use this program option to switch
Image

this will make the window look like this

rebar controls aren't the easiest to work with vertically, so I had to make some concessions, e.g. the name of the property is now shown in the cue text (and part of the infotip)

download beta version: www.zabkat.com/test/deskrule_setup_beta.exe (4MB)

anyway please tell me what you think!
ps. if you have a super hires monitor (high DPI) please tell me how it looks for you

Hi Nikos,

I've just installed the beta and it works. I see the limitations you mentioned, but the idea is good. I think the vertical layout makes more sense as it organizes the search steps from left to right, although this might be a cultural bias. I don't have a high DPI monitor, so I can't give you feedback on that.

I'll stick with 'horizontal' or regular layout for now.

All the best

thanks for trying it out, in the end I found a high-ish DPI monitor and it looks ok. BTW the version is final, you can get it from the website (v2.2)
