Title: 3 nitpicks and 1 suggestion
Post by: raun on January 31, 2017, 11:20:32 AM
I have 3 minor nitpicks with beersmith 2's UI:



1 other suggestion:

When copying a recipe to the brewlog consider automatically changing the date to today's date.  I know this wouldn't be a 'copy to brewlog', anymore but more of an 'add to brewlog' instead.  I use date for a recipe to say when I added a recipe and date in the brewlog to be the brew day.

And while we have your ear Brad LOL

* When a recipe is first opened, the ingredients list is scrolled down by default so the top items don't show
* When in the notes tab, the vertical scroll bar is visible but doesn't work unless you move the mouse to the right hand edge
* Open a recipe with notes in the "Notes" field, select the Notes tab, single click in the "Taste Notes" field then single click in the "Notes" field at or near the end of the text and often times it highlights 1 or more rows of text.  You can't type until you clear the selection
* Ctrl+C a recipe in a folder, if you right click on another folder, the pop up menu should include paste

OK, done for now

PS, Windows 10
PSS, still love the SW, keep up the good work :)

I would agree about the res on newer monitors. I have a MBPro w/ Retina display and the icons have always been fuzzy.

+1 for the "add to brew log"

I use it the same way - it's my log.

-1 on the "add to brew log"

I don't copy to the brew log until fermentation is finished and I have tasted the beer. Only then, after I have finished writing all my notes on the beer, do I add it to the log. I use the actual brewing date for the date, and I want that date to remain accurate.
