Minimize sidebar
2 2

6 posts in this topic

Hi there,

 

here's a minor UI idea that i would like to see discussed. When the sidebar in any of the project views is minimized the text is hardly readyble anymore, the icons removed and the sidebar still needs a fair bit of screen estate. Instead i propose that the sidebar minimizes to an iconbar, and the trees are then displayed as flyout menus.

 

Here are quick mockups:

 

Standard view:

Hi Guys,

 

thanks for your input Thorsten. I like it, and have made a mockup of it with 3.0 style that you can find in our new section for the upcoming version 3 here. We would love to get feedback on this. After Siggraph we will post more articles in the 3.0 section about features we would like to get feedback on.

 

Cheers,

Fredrik

Are there any updates on this feature? It would make the overall application more readable, that would be great!

I'm afraid that we never got to implement this feature. I will highlight this again with the product team as it is something we may take into consideration for future versions of ftrack
