Hello TinderBox Ohana,
Currently evaluating TB9 demo to see if it’s a good fit for my future projects. I’ve searched the entire forum in regards to my subject question but the returned value was null; please forgive me if I’ve overlooked this topic because I’m new to this forum.
Long story short, I’ve watched vids plus investigated TB9’s feature set and while tinkering with notes to get a better feel for my future workflow usage it apparently surprised me that I became quite annoyed with the inspector floating hovering window. I’ve come to understand thus far that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with working in a floating window app environment (for those whom are conditioned to do so) however it’s just my personal preference to have all frequently used property inspectors visually accessible and docked so it doesn’t break my focus or thought process to constantly open/close or slide it out of the way or shrink the project window to access the areas blocked by the inspector hovering on top or over utilize quick key commands to reveal and hide (hope this makes sense and doesn’t come across as being lazy after all software at its price point are automatically expected to allow the user to do more with less interface resistance).
Simply put, I’ve grown accustomed over decades to utilizing macOS apps with a nested or docked property window capability.
Please inform me if there’s actually a setting that will allow this, to whom this may concern. I’m totally aware that this may seem like a nitpick of sorts but it’s one of those things about Tinderbox’s current user interface that insults my user experience irregardless of how powerful it is under the hood; it’s also very distracting especially when switching between several other modern macOS apps (I’d give examples but the list would be too long hence “long story short”).
On the other hand thanks for TB’s creation overall and its one of a kind thought process environment. I certainly hope a future UI update is in its roadmap because aesthetics really matter in my workflows respectfully.
Superficial thought just out of curiosity: Why doesn’t Tinderbox adopt the new look & feel of macOS (Apple’s Developer UI Guidelines <developer . apple . com/videos/play/wwdc2020/10104/>)?
Thanks in advance for your time and understanding.
