Architect v3 Layout Suggestions - Comments from others requested
I have a suggestion on a layout change for Architect v3.
This is a minor change which will allow me (and I hope others) an easier time using Architect.
Currently the Project Inspector is on the upper right and the Toolbox is on the left. I have the option to swap the Project Inspector and the Toolbox.
I find that I navigate with the Project Inspector to edit components. When editing controllers, I often do not need either the Toolbox or the Config area. Moving the Project Inspector to the left helps but I often collapse that side to get a wider editing area.
Here are my suggestions:
I'd love to hear from other users on these suggestions. Lets make this program easy to use!
- Allow the right side to be collapsed. This would allow more area for the editor.
- On the right side, put the Config area and the Project Inspector area in either tabs or an accordion. I prefer this because I only need one at a time. This would allow a larger area for both and less time spent scrolling. I find I am constantly changing the size of these areas by dragging the center up and down. I'd much rather click on a tab.
If Architect is written in Extjs, these should be easy layout changes. :D
