Rule One of Design: Always put the same thing in the same place.
I don't know how many times I've opened a Layout screen when I've wanted Settings, and vice-versa. Extremely poor design.fix design broken fail
But you get used to it ;-)
Hi Lukas Xuereb,
go to Version 10.5 and above. Then you can design in browser. No rightklick and settings are always on the right side of the browser. Nearly what you want.
I'm feeling your pain my friend. As an active community member for six months, you will be aware of the transition of BOARD from Desktop to Web, commencing with BOARD 10.5. So, I can only imagine your post was in a fit of frustration as there is no chance of BOARD updating an outgoing product. We are all, some more than others, mentally scarred by the BOARD design.
There are many instances where the design becomes maddening. Appreciating that the journey you are on is the same journey that alot of us have walked, you may already be aware that formatting dataviews and charts is an absolute LOL blast, requiring one to learn the location of each component and then where it is formatted; not all borders are formatted with the tick box HOWTO: Hide ALL Dataview border lines and Chart Markers & Legend, ha, don't get me started.
So, please post your woes, it's healthy to vent frustrations, but know that you have support from veterans who wear their BOARD scars proudly and are willing to jump to the aid of fellow BOARDERS. You are not alone. BOARD didn't get it all right the first time...no, second... OK, so BOARD are continually revising and improving their offering . The Roadmap is aspirational and User feedback is greatly received but rarely acknowledged Review process for Idea : Feedback.
But, on the plus side... it's only 62 days to Christmas...Yay, I love Christmas.
As a mere drone in the ant farm, I’m all too aware that I am only able to vocalise my frustrations, knowing full well that it is a single cry lost amongst the lamentations of the many.
It all just serves to highlight the ever-present chasm between programmers and designers. Always striving to build bridges… never quite making them strong enough.
