Selecting and Opening Subfolders
Overall I love the power of this program, currently using the 1.83 Beta.
The one (and only slightly) annoying glitch I experience every time (and was true with 1.82 Stable) is that when the application asks me to choose a folder for it's work space, or when I have to Load lights, or calibration frames, the click/double click to navigate to and open a subfolder is not reliable. I have to click, wait, double click.... and if I get it just right, it will open the subfolder. I sometimes have to do this 4 or 5 times to open the folder, which should just need a simple double click.
This on an iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019), Big Sur OS.
@applal This is a known issue with folder selection widgets in Java, which is the programming language that APP was developed in. I'll pass on the info to Mabula but I doubt there is much he can do about it.
It has to do with Java partly. It also has to do with the double click time period. So that is the period in which you need to double click to make the double click register. I will check if I can adjust that on the application level or to make it adjustable for the user 😉 I have put it on my ToDo list to do this quickly.
i have tried every possible speed in my double-click. I am very Mac-savvy and have patiently looked at variables on my end. My best results com le from a click-pause-double-click which typically works about 60% of the time.This function should be fairly to correct as a double click is just a select/open command.
