User Interface Improvement
« on: November 30, 2012, 06:50:22 AM »
Brad:  Could you go thru the program and change some of the dialogs' initial focus field?  For example, in a recipe if I double click a grain to change the amount the "Grain" dialog pops up with the NAME field highlighted and ready for me to change it.  I usually don't change the name of the grain.  I ususally change the amount.  It would be a big UI improvement to set focus and selection on the field that makes the most sense when entering a dialog box.

If you'd like, I could spend some time making a list of some of the most obvious ones.  Just email me.

P.S. and I'll put another plug in for Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V...

  I like the suggestion.  In fact on the mobile app I've got two dialogs per ingredient - one used for "adding/editing" amounts and such and another used for editing details.  I think it works better, even though it was a lot of work to implement.
