posited: blender has a good UI


software doing advanced tasks should be set up to make it streamlined for proficient users, not beginners

that said idk. I have an inkling I could be good at this and in fact want to, but who knows. certain yospos characters repeatedly make it clear that working in a job ruins everything.

Literally every website in the past 10 years.

Also, every mobile site.

Also, anything ever designed by someone who's experience is 'front end only'.

Also, literally everything wrapped in Electron, save Discord.

sounds like you need to turn on your monitor

more bad ux: pressing the windows key and typing to search has lag before it starts accepting input so if you don't wait a tick before typing, it's gonna miss the first letter and then when you hit enter, instead of opening vs code, it's gonna open a web search for odell beckham jr

my
max book pro when you open it starts accepting text input immediately but itís not actually ready for a password because a second later it resets the box and is then actually ready. so itís very easy to type the first few letter of the password and then the end of the password into the box that actually works

ever since one particular update. used to work flawlessly

ableton is starting to feel very last gen with the way it does loads of things

we always and I mean daily, get prescriptions with an item or two missing. I know itís missing because I can see what a person got last time and thereís something missing


when the doctor tho, if someone hasnít clicked the box ďregular medĒ on their software when theyíre started a new med, and the doctor recalls regular medicines, it goes missing and doctor doesnít know

if that person goes to a different pharmacy well then thereís no history and if the person isnít very sharp they might not even notice the lack of medicine



the poor UI here literally breaks my heart and makes me fart

davinci resolve is a good one because itís very powerful software but somehow doesnít feel like it

discord has an ok ux except for one glaring thing theyíre refuse to fix* but the biggest gripe is that itís a great tool that is useful for many communities but leans into the gamer aesthetic

I have it set up for a pharmacy group and itís basically perfect except that I cringe when I imagine health professionals opening up the app for the first time



*apparently if you have it open on your desktop, you canít force it to send notifications to all devices, so i could be logged in at home and miss an important notification on my phone because home pc got the notifications. apparently this is working as intended. ok but why the gently caress isnít there an option?

whatís with websites like google that requires username press enter then new screen then password

is it to gently caress up password managers? sometimes it feels like some websites try to make it more difficult to use pass word managers

tiktok has a pretty good ui/ux all over

the desktop website is very good. all the tools work well

and the iphone app works so well. making the video fullscreen and putting the controls on the video is actaully a great idea, because they all work so well. its so smooth going between videos.

its good. im risking it all by making this claim

unreal engine is a an amazing tool as far as what you can create in it, but itís UI feels clunky. I need to go use it to give some examples



one thing is that with most tools you can get to a
competent state, and once youíre there you can make decent judgemental calls as to whatís bad, and whatís good


blender for example has a tool menu thing. like a cad program, every function can be run from a console so this makes every function searchable. I have space bar set to bringing up the tool search so i donít have to hunt for tools. this menu could do with some effort as far as remembering commonly used functions and more flexibility in the search but itís very good

and like if youíre selecting and merging vertices for example, you press the hot key and a menu appears under the mouse cursor and gives you five options and every subsequent time the menu will have moved so the last selected option is under the cursor. these kinds of UI tricks are such a pleasure and I appreciate


when I was in affinity photo, I wanted a tool but i had to
google to find out what menu it was in. never necessary in blender coz of the search thing

that does sound pretty cool. if only I used my mac for anything worthwhile

Sagebrush posted:


you don't need to know or use 97% of those to be able to use the program, so they are hidden in the command line instead of being crammed into toolbars.

one of the biggest burdens blender is left with is that it might have powerful selection options (or something else thatís just an example) but if you look for them and end up googling for them youíll just have a bunch of ďpress h then j then ctrl-backflipĒ due to the nature of the blender community. suffers the same fate that linux does in that a million users use it a million different ways and so the lack of feeling like there is a one true way to use it I reckon is not a good thing. canít really articulate why but thatís my opinion
