ToDoList 6 &7 - UI comparison
Starting TDL 6 gives very nice look:
Basiccally I focus on task name but all other info is clearly visible "right next" to it.
All data seems connected thanks to row selection:
Starting TDL 7 shows:
Now I need to look on two different areas to get the same amount of information:
Even if the spacing is not very big…
… it makes a distraction and data feels unconnected. I feel the urge to look left/right to be sure that all is OK.
When I was navigating through sub-nodes it was still easy to see required data even if columns widths changed:
With tasks split into two panes, some information gets hidden due to sub-nodes navigation:
Columns widths change to compensate amount of information which not only hides parts of data but also creates horizontal scrolbar which needs to be constantly moved left/right to see what I want.
The best: give an option to use either two panes or old TreeListView.
Alternative: resize left pane automativally and ty to fit as much info as possible without. Right panel should always try to show whole information, left – should try as much as possible without scrolling.
